~ Eleanor Roosevelt

She was the longest-serving First Lady, holding the position from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband, President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s , four terms in office. After his death, she served at the United Nations, focusing on human rights and women’s issues. She became chair of the U.N.’s Human Rights Commission and helped to write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights—an effort that she considered to be her greatest achievement.
Eleanor Roosevelt was a great humanitarian who dedicated much of her life to fighting for political and social change. President Harry S. Truman called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.
