Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt {1884-1962} was an extremely vocal, active, and influential First Lady who redefined the role of the president's spouse. She held press conferences for women reporters, where she championed the rights of women, youths, minorities, and the disadvantaged. She advanced this agenda in her extremely popular syndicated newspaper column entitled "My Day," which appeared 6 days a week from 1936 to 1962.
