Fact of the Day: First Lady Eleanor

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the biggest known advocates for women's rights in the 20th century. She did everything she could as First Lady to help out gender equality. She often would only agree to interview with female reporters, essentially making sure that all the newspapers would have to have some female journalists.
