The Woman Behind the New Deal: The Life and Legacy of Frances Perkins

By: Kirstin Downey

Publisher: Anchor Books, 2010


Think FDR is responsible for the New Deal? Think again. It was Frances Perkins, the first woman to hold a cabinet position. When FDR asked her to be Secretary of Labor, she responded with a list of things she wanted to do - the New Deal. FDR said, “okay.” Of course, as a woman, she was persecuted relentlessly and died in near poverty and almost unknown. An amazing story of the labor movement in the U.S. and the fight for equality and fairness.
