Description

This educational module examines the development of Eleanor Roosevelt and her achievements as a human rights advocate. As the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, she advocated for women's rights and civil rights for African Americans. She utilized her background in journalism to speak up for others, and she wasn't afraid to spark controversy. She later became the first delegate for the United States to the United Nations where she oversaw the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Her work as an activist, politician, and diplomat established her legacy as one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
