Stateswoman to the World
A Story about Eleanor Roosevelt
From the Series Creative Minds Biographies
Eleanor Roosevelt is perhaps best known for her role as First Lady, wife to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But this strong-willed woman was a skilled politician in her own right, who overcame her own prejudices to fight for the rights of women, blacks and the poor. This inspiring biography tells of Eleanor Roosevelt’s development from a lonely, orphaned teenager to a determined, socially conscious woman, beloved in the United States and throughout the world.
