Abstract

Eleanor Roosevelt was the first important woman in American public life to take advantage of her opportunities to gain access to the media as a means of building a communications network with other women. Both as a newsmaker and a newswriter herself, Mrs. Roosevelt participated in the journalistic process through press conferences, a daily newspaper column and magazine articles. She aimed to make her communications efforts a two-way channel with women throughout the nation. Although her activities had a political component, they reached beyond the political to act as a medium for building greater self-awareness within women.
