Our first “feminist” first lady was also one of our most active and influential first ladies.  While her paralyzed husband led our country through the Great Depression and World War II, Eleanor traveled throughout the country and the world bringing back to the White House a perspective that Franklin Roosevelt valued, appreciated and often implemented.  An activist and humanitarian before, during and after FDR’s presidency, she served as Harry Truman’s Ambassador to the United Nations where he called her, “First Lady of the World.”
