"Thank you very much. I think that's a very good objective, but there is one thing that I think a great many women are interested in, and that is that here, where women have in many ways a very much better situation than they have in other countries, that still in some of the other countries women can be found in higher positions, policy-making positions or legislative positions, than they are in this country."
Editor's Note: The President's Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) was established on December 14, 1941 by the executive order of President John F. Kennedy. This commission sought to improve the economic, social, legal, and educational status of American women. Roosevelt chaired the commission until her death in November 1962.
