Early Political Career : Invitations to CNB from Eleanor Roosevelt (1934-1936)
Beginning in 1935, Consuelo Northrop Bailey received three invitations, including envelopes and either a rain date card or a response card, from the White House to garden parties hosted by Eleanor Roosevelt. These garden parties were created to gather women working in executive positions throughout political office in America. There is no confirmation as to whether or not Consuelo Northrop Bailey attended any of these garden parties. There is, in fact, no confirmation as to whether Eleanor Roosevelt and Consuelo Northrop Bailey had any impact at all on each other, whether they even spoke or not. The gathering of so many powerful and successful women was a large message to the American society: women could be successful within their own careers.
