Annotation Frances Perkins had a long and distinguished career in public service before she was named by FDR to serve as his Secretary of Labor. Perkins is credited with many things that workers take for granted today, including social security and a 40-hour week. This well-researched biography draws on Perkins's personal papers and her unpublished oral history, and provides a portrait of a progressive who worked for change and who, after joining the establishment, actually achieved it.
Editors Note The stunning portrait of the first female cabinet member and one of the most influential women of the 20th century who, over the 12 years beginning in 1933, spearheaded the fight to improve the lives of America's working people with ideas that became some of the most important employment laws in U.S. history. Reprint.
