|Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884 - 1962|
Unfortunately, this weekend is the FINAL section of the FINAL volume of Eleanor Roosevelt’s biography. But, I DO promise you lots of fun, because I have included a special extended intro, a few new notable women that I learned about, and some inspirational words from OTHER women with whom you will be familiar. It has been such a pleasure taking this journey with you. I have learned SO much and I hope you have, too.
The clip within the episode entitled “Eleanor and Jackie and Barbara and Hillary and Michelle” includes sound bites from the following events:
Hillary Clinton - 4th women’s conference in Beijing China
Barbara Bush - Commencement Speech at Wellesley University in 1990
Michelle Obama - various speeches, including ‘Let Girls Learn’
Jackie Kennedy - In Her Own Words (recorded after JFK’s assasination)
Eleanor Roosevelt - Nationally aired radio speech given the night of Pearl Harbor

To keep the fun times rolling, I have included here a couple of great videos I found on YouTube. One is a song called “Suno Suno Meri Aawaaz” by Anandmurti Gurumaa. The title loosely translates to “Listen to My Voice”. It is a beautiful song, and it is also an important message of education, empowerment and enlightenment for the future of womankind. The other, as you can see, is a song about all of the First Ladies by Dot of the Animaniacs. We’ve got a little something for everybody! Enjoy, and as always, Happy reading!
