The governors are in charge of the day-to-day administration of the states.

Until the 1970s women governors were a rare commodity in the United States. Nearly all the elected governors up until the 1970s were men. United States did not elect any female governors in their own rights until the 1970s. Although the first two female governors, Mrs Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyoming and Mrs Miriam A. Ferguson of Texas were elected on November 4, 1924, it was only out of sympathy for their affected husbands or due to their husbands influence as former governors rather than on merit. Both preceded in office by their late husbands- William Ross had served as governor of Wyoming from 1923 to 1924, and James Edward Furguson had served as the 29th governor of Texas from January 19, 1915 to August 25, 1917.

Arizona is the first state where a female followed another female as governor. Arizona also has had the most female governors with a total of three (as of January 2010). As of December 6, 2006, when Sarah Palin was inaugurated as the first female governor of Alaska, a record nine women had been elected in their own rights and were serving as the chief executive of their states.

Today, some 15 percent of state governors are women. At least twenty-nine women (as of 2010) have served as the governor of an American state. This book lists all the individual governors of each of the 50 states from 1776 (or since statehood) to 2009 and highlights on the powers and limitations of the individual governors of all the 50 states.
