This month’s featured heroine is Eleanor Roosevelt!
Does she look familiar? Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the most recognizable people of her time and used her privilege and power to fight for civil rights for women and African Americans. With a fondness for journalism, she put out a daily newspaper column and radio program, challenging conventional gender norms of 1930s and 1940s.
