Eleanor Roosevelt’s First Press Conference - March 6, 1933
On March 6, 1933 Eleanor Roosevelt held the first of her 348 women’s only press conferences. Before this time, First Ladies had little contact with reporters. Eleanor recognized that holding regular conferences could enhance the public role of the First Lady - a role she transformed during her 12 years in the White House.
About 35 women attended Eleanor’s first press conference which was held in the Monroe Room on the second floor of the living quarters in the White House. The press conferences were attended by the major female reporters of the day - including Lorena Hickok, Ruby Black, Bess Furman, May Craig, Emma Bugbee and Martha Stayer.
Eleanor used these press conferences as a way to not only announce her schedule of activities but also as a platform to publicize the work of women leaders, answer her critics, and entertain questions on a variety of subjects. Topics covered everything from domestic issues like social programs, race, youth activism, etc. to international politics and the role of women in war and peace.

Anonymous asked: Something I think is horseshit is when feminists see a couple and the man works and the woman stays home he's oppressive but if the guy stays home and she works he's a piece of shit bum That's making her support the family make up your mind!
YES BRIT…that leaves you and Christie off that list.
If the atmosphere makes you wonder if you’re masculine, you’re not.
MRAs are mainly pissed because feminism has gotten ugly and out of hand, and they want to beat up innocent men.
You thought you had a valid point, didn’t you?
Oh right, it’s WOMEN/feminists who are wanting to beat up men. Says the guy who has a gif of a dude beating another dude with a stick.
MRAs are just jealous because feminists can open jars.
Ms. Kerry Washington.
Beyoncé gets distracted by the audience knowing the lyrics to “XO.”
This Indian actress shut down a reporter for telling her to keep quiet about women’s rights.
God the shade she is throwing. She’s glorious.
The EYES. I’m almost willing to praise the guy for just somehow not bursting into flames except he’s probably an ass so I won’t.
