International Women's Day: Eleanor First Lady of the World

Location: UCB Room 100

In recognition of International Women's Day, learn about Eleanor Roosevelt--who spearheaded the Universal Declaration of Human Rights--in the film Eleanor, First Lady of the World. The film recounts Mrs. Roosevelt's life after the 1945 death of her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At the request of new president Truman, Eleanor serves as a United Nations delegate, spending much of her time tilting with dedicated anti-FDR politico John Foster Dulles (E.G. Marshall). She goes on to spearhead the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Free! Sponsored by the United Nations Association-Hawaii Island Chapter and the International Student Services & Intercultural Education program.
