Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt was born into a wealthy family. She had the opportunity to attend college and obtained a Harvard University education. She was the distant cousin of Franklin D. Roosevelt, her future husband.

Eleanor Roosevelt was First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945 while married to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Eleanor was a very active woman. She raised five children and was involved in the Democrat Party politics as well as numerous social reform organizations (History.com, 2021). She didn’t let her role as the President’s wife define her and set out on many political adventures. She worked on political, racial, and social justice. She helped fight for the civil rights of African Americans. She also fought for human rights and delivered her speech called “The Struggle for Human Rights” which urged UN members to pass the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (History.com, 2021).

Eleanor had her hands in many things and tried to make change. She accomplished a lot in her time as First Lady, but also did plenty before and after her time in the White House. She was an advocate for many and made a difference.
