American presidents have shaped the course of global affairs for generations, but as the saying goes, behind every great man there’s a great woman. While the First Ladies often remain overshadowed by their husbands, some have carved unique niches in their time and left their own lasting legacy. Abigail Adams served as a political advisor that earned her the moniker "Mrs. President", while Dolley Madison carved out some of the First Lady's traditional roles. Meanwhile, Eleanor Roosevelt gave voice to policy issues in a way that made her a forerunner of First Ladies like Hillary Clinton.
During the last 100 years, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton have been two of the most venerated women in American history, but in the 80 years before that, they were among the most hated women in American history. Anthony took note of her contemporaries’ distaste for her but remained defiant, asserting, “I have encountered riotous mobs and have been hung in effigy, but my motto is: Men's rights are nothing more. Women's rights are nothing less.” Though they are best remembered today for working towards women’s suffrage, Anthony and Stanton were active and progressive advocates for all of the leading human rights issues of their time.
To say Helen Keller is one of the most unique figures in American history would be an understatement. As a young child, Helen lost both her vision and hearing, leaving her deafblind, an almost hopelessly debilitating condition that left her literally trapped, unable to communicate with anyone. But Helen eventually overcame the frustration and used unimaginable perseverance to overcome her disability.
