By Jody Williams
1     There was a time when women did not have power. Many thought that women should be wives. They should be mothers. They should not work outside of the home. Times have changed.
 
2     Eunice Kennedy Shriver was born on July 20, 1921. She grew up in a time when women did not have power. She had a large family. There were nine children. Her parents encouraged all of their children. They wanted them to be the best that they could be. They wanted them to work hard. Each child lived life with that in mind.
 
3     The Kennedy family is famous. The family is known for their role in government. John F. Kennedy was the thirty-fifth president. Others became senators. Some became congressmen. Each family member has been a leader.
