Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) wasn’t just the First Lady to the 32nd president FDR. She was a civil rights activist, mother of 6, politician, diplomat, and someone who spoke her mind. She even publicly disagreed with FDR at times during his presidency, which was a no-no at the time. You know, women were supposed to stay home and bake cookies or whatever and just agree and smile all the time. She was a very public person who advocated for a lot of people, especially children. She was even buddies with Amelia Earhart! There is a lot to say about her, so check out more here!
