Eleanor Roosevelt


Kathie Dice portrays Eleanor Roosevelt

The second program in our OHIO WOMEN THEN AND NOW series took place on Thursday, March 13 at the East Campus of Cuyahoga Community College. Kathy Dice brought Eleanor Roosevelt to life. The audience spent time after the performance chatting about Eleanor in more detail and enjoying refreshments.

What if Eleanor Roosevelt got 'tweets', or text messages? How did she REALLY feel about Franklin's dalliance with HER social secretary? Where was she when Franklin died? Get the answers to these questions and more with this all new first person portrayal of this incredible woman. What would it be like if she "came back from the other side" to tell us her story.

Eleanor was an active public figure for most of her life - and especially as the first lady. She gave press conferences and spoke out for human rights, children's causes and women's issues, working on behalf of the League of Women Voters and traveled across the country, stopping in Ohio more than once. She even had her own newspaper column, "My Day." She also focused on helping the country's poor, stood against racial discrimination and, during World War II, traveled abroad to visit U.S. troops.

If Eve is the first lady of earth, Eleanor certainly is THE first lady of the United States. Never before has one woman done so much for so many. Eleanor was a gutsy woman with a knack for getting her own way with some of the most powerful men on earth while never letting a sense of self-importance get in her way.
