"I could not at any age be content to sit by the fireside and simply look on."
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
|Gail Conrad as Eleanor Roosevelt at a Women in History program|
sponsored by the Sylvania Area Historical Society.
Eleanor came to life through the voice of Gail Conrad, a member of the American Association of University Wormen (AAUW) and a participant in the AAUW's women in history series. The AAUW series features "living history presentations to introduce children and adults to notable women and the important contributions they have made to society." The dramatic soliloquys bring the experiences and views of women to life.
The next programs in the Sylvania Area Historial Society's women in history series will feature Annie Oakley and Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, America's first woman doctor. Look for more information in our newsletter, the Sylvania Advantage, or on our website at http://www.sylvaniahistory.org.
