But her grandmother prompted Frances to generally task herself. When somebody starts a door to you, go forward. Therefore she did. Frances recognized she had to make her voice noticed, even though speaking produced her uncomfortable, to be able to battle injustice and build applications to protect people across the country. So when newly-elected Chief executive Franklin Delano Roosevelt finally asked Frances to become the 1st female Secretary of Labor and help pull the nation from the Great Depression, she knew she had to walk through that open door and ahead into history. Within this empowering, inspirational biography, discover how the initial woman to serve in a presidential cupboard led the charge to produce the back-up that protects American workers and their families even today.
