Woman of the Week: Eleanor Roosevelt

As I began doing this weeks challenge I began thinking about how with this company I really want women to be proud of the lives they live and the things they are accomplishing. This has nothing to do with a feminist movement or burning your bras but more about being proud to do what you do.

I think the scariest thing in my life has been moving forward with a company that I have been working on since I was in 6th grade. But those fears and butterflies that you have are normal and as I believe tell you that you are about to do something great.

So along with our other days that you have grown accustomed to seeing I have finally found a topic that I would like to showcase on Thursdays. Women. Now I know that you might be thinking . . . uhh duh. But I really wanted to think hard about how this blog segment would live. You see a lot of women power, girl, pink yatta yatta. But I want this to showcase the tomboy powerhouses, the women who did the things girls aren't "supposed" to do or were not even allowed to do.

If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them, and if you would like to guest blog on this segment, even better. Otherwise I will be writing each week about a woman that I deem amazing.

1884 - 1962

Obviously the first woman that I am going to showcase is Eleanor Roosevelt. The words that came out of this woman's mouth alone were amazing. "The purpose of life is to live it, to taste the experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience." "Well behaved women rarely make history." Great stuff. Not only was she well-spoken, she was incredibly intelligent handling politics and most of the men of the time.
