U.S. Women History Name Course Date Summary of Eleanor Roosevelt Eleanor Roosevelt was born in 1882 and died in 1962 having lived for 80 years. She was both strong-willed and lived according to her own beliefs. She rose from a shy young girl to a respected figure both in the national and international fields (Bibliography 2013). She was raised by her grandmother after being orphaned at an early age of only ten years old. She was schooled in a boarding school in England. She was later married Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1905 who became the president of the United States from 1933 to 1945. She got her role as the initiator of the universal declaration of human rights while at the United Nations will be remembered forever. “I love people and I love the contacts their letters have brought me remote contacts to be sure but rather intimate ones” (Lopez 2013). She touched and changed the lives of many. Her works and expression of love for all are what makes her a leader to envision. Bibliography Bech Susan Abrams. 2004.

Before the nation became obsessed with Jackie Kennedy in the 1960s (and is still obsessing us—have you ever noticed that each year several books are published about her), Eleanor Roosevelt was the most publicized of our First Ladies. But unlike Jackie-O (as she became known after she married Greek shipping billionaire Aristotle Onassis in 1968), Roosevelt was highly controversial. Why would that be? She helped her polio-stricken husband regain his strength and re-enter politics and she otherwise seemed to be a “good wife,” raising five children; she was a champion of civil rights and women's issues. After reading the article I posted about her in my lecture, give a brief summary of her life. What boundaries did she cross that caused the controversy that surrounded her?
