Eleanor Roosevelt Tea Towel

Eleanor Roosevelt Tea Towel

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was the longest serving First Lady of the United States, during her husband Franklin D. Roosevelt's term in office from 1933 to 1945. Eleanor was a particularly outspoken First Lady, holding regular press conferences and often taking Franklin's place at public events due to the latter's disability, and she significantly defined the role of her office for future First Ladies. She supported an increased role for women in the workplace and advocated civil rights for African Americans. Roosevelt was the US's first delegate to the United Nations from 1945 to 1952, where she chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights and oversaw the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
