“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Acutely sensitive to human suffering and the need for social justice, Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated her life to promoting civil rights, eliminating poor housing, reducing unemployment, and furthering other humanitarian causes. The niece of President Theodore Roosevelt, she married Franklin Delano Roosevelt (a distant cousin) in 1905; she became one of the most outspoken and beloved first
ladies in history. In addition to writing a syndicated column, “My Day,” Roosevelt authored several books, including The Moral Basis of Democracy (1940) and You Can Learn by Living (1960).
