Governor of California’s Wife will go by First Partner Not First Lady

In a clear message for gender equality, the governor of California’s wife will go by first partner, and not the traditional first lady title. Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, said this week that the title first partner better reflects equality, and her partnership with the newly elected governor. First Partner Siebel Newsom reflected this change on her Twitter.

Newsom is a gender-equality activist—something seen in her films Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In. She is also the founder of The Representation Project, which works to increase representation through all forms of media.
