“The Legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt” lives up to its title by emphasizing the impact Eleanor had on shaping the role as first lady. The author backs up her claim by mentioning first ladies since Eleanor and demonstrating how and what they learned from Eleanor. She includes several examples such as Ladybird Johnson’s lobbying for environmental protection, Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug campaign, and Pat Nixon’s creation of White House tours for the blind and deaf.

Canadian women only began to contemplate vocations in politics seriously in the 1970s, having learned in the earlier period of history that winning the vote was only a first step in achieving meaningful political and social change.
