“A woman is like a tea bag—you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt was a very strong woman indeed, as well as a political figure, diplomat and activist. Come hear a first-person account of the First Lady who regularly made public appearances on behalf of her husband, but also created a public life of her own. Though Eleanor’s outspokenness was controversial at the time, she held regular press conferences, wrote a daily newspaper column, and hosted a weekly radio show. Even after Franklin’s death, Eleanor continued her work, she was among the first US delegates to the United Nations and overseeing the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Gail Conrad will portray Eleanor Roosevelt as part of the National Women’s History Project and a member of the Toledo branch of the American Association of University Women.
