30 Days of Inspiring Women - Day 16. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) was an American political figure, diplomat and activist. She served as the First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office, making her the longest serving First Lady of the United States. Roosevelt served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. Roosevelt brought unprecedented activism and ability to the role of the First Lady. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. Following her husband's death in 1945, Roosevelt remained active in politics for the remaining 17 years of her life. She pressed the United States to join and support the United Nations and became its first delegate. She served as the first chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights and oversaw the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. By the time of her death, Roosevelt was regarded as "one of the most esteemed women in the world"; The New York Times called her "the object of almost universal respect" in an obituary. This quick bio only covers a little of Eleanor's life, she genuinely lived it to the fullest and really changed the world!
