This button refers to First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt who was married to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR).  She was the first presidential spouse to actively engage in politics and by doing so she made herself available for attack by the opposition.  When President Roosevelt ran for a third term in 1940 against the Republican candidate, Wendell Willkie, many anti-FDR buttons were sold by street vendors across the country.
