Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. She was one of the most outspoken women in the White House. During her husband's presidency, Eleanor gave press conferences and wrote a newspaper column.
She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, holding the post from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's 4 terms in office. After his death, she served at the United Nations, focusing on human rights and women's issues. President Harry S. Truman later called her the "First Lady of the World" in tribute to her human rights achievements.
A revolutionary first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the most outspoken women to live in the White House. While she's had her share of critics, most agree that she was a great humanitarian who dedicated much of her life to fighting for political and social change.
