Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the most significant American women of the twentieth century, and remains one of the most admired. As First Lady, journalist, activist, diplomat, Democratic Party leader, and public speaker, ER helped shape not only the United States but also the United Nations and the path we still follow toward the greater protection of human rights. The project is working to publish both digital and print editions of Eleanor Roosevelt's political papers.
