Some first ladies are not content to stay in the background. They are determined to blaze a trail, not just for future first ladies but for women everywhere. Join us as we look at Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton, two political pioneers who took full advantage of the powerful platform they were given. We reveal how Eleanor became a champion of the downtrodden and risked her life in her fight for civil and women's rights. Then we show how Hillary followed in her idol's activist footsteps, notching successes, and enemies, along the way.
