Anna Eleanor Roosevelt is a favorite woman in History as a symbol
of caring ,as political, as a diplomat, and as an activist who embodied
the aggressive spirit of feminism throughout her life. Among her countless achievements she advocated for extended rights of women in the work force. President Harry S. Truman called her “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements. Later she became Chairwoman of JFK’s Status of Women in the early 1960’s, prior to her death. She made innumerable National and International Speaking Engagements. Adlai Stevenson asked “What other single human being has touched and transformed the existence of
so many? I resonate with her emphasizing independent thought “people grow through experience when they meet life honestly and courageously.” She received 35 honorary degrees 13 which were from Universities outside
the United States for her many lifetime achievements.
