Eleanor Roosevelt: Her Story, Her Day

Thursday, March 15, 2018 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
In honor of Women’s History Month, hear Eleanor’s story told in her own words woven from her writings, including her long running newspaper column, My Day. Discover the path that led her on the journey to her marriage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to a mother of six children, to the White House, where she will tell you of her work during WWII. She will share with you how she gained the confidence to step out of the traditional role of women and how she faced her fears, celebrated her joys, and grew from her struggles as a daughter, a wife, a mother and a friend. This program is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Wheaton.
