Book News Annotation:

O'Farrell (Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project, George Washington U.) details Eleanor Roosevelt's relationship with the American labor movement during the first half of the twentieth century, her activities on behalf of workers, her beliefs and values, and work with friends such as Rose Schneiderman of the Women's Trade Union League and the garment unions and United Automobile Workers president Walter Reuther, as well as adversaries like journalist Westbrook Pegler. O'Farrell traces her work in New York City tenements, the White House, local union halls, the AFL-CIO, political rallies, and the United Nations to develop a vision of labor rights as human rights, and her belief that everyone had the right to a decent job, fair working conditions, a living wage, and a voice at work.
