Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt made an enormous contribution to world peace as President Truman’s ambassador to the United Nations.¬† Widely admired as a former First Lady of the United States she was soon referred to as First Lady of the World.

At the UN she served as Chairperson of the committee that drafted The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  If James Madison can be recognized as the Father of the U.S. Constitution and the American Bill of Rights, Eleanor Roosevelt must be referred to as the leader who reframed the American  Bill of Rights and obtained the ratification of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the General Assembly of the United Nations,

The hope for the survival of mankind in a world of freedom, justice, and peace, depends upon the swift codification of these ideals into enforceable world law.
