Meeting Room D
When Lou Henry moved into the White House in 1929, she looked forward to using her influence to strengthen the areas that were near and dear to her heart: women’s opportunities. The onset of the Great Depression challenged her plans, but she saw new opportunities for serving the nation and remained undaunted.
