Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. After a privileged upbringing, she married her distant cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in 1905. She convinced him to stay in politics after he was stricken with polio in 1921, and often gave speeches in his place. She was the first presidential spouse to hold regular press conferences, write a daily newspaper column, write a monthly magazine column, host a weekly radio show, and speak at a national party convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the rights of African and Asian Americans, and of World War II refugees. After her husband's death, she stayed active in politics for the rest of her life. She pressed the USA to join the United Nations and was its first Ambassador from 1945-1952. She was the first chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights, and oversaw the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Later she chaired the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women.
A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
