Family portrait of American politician Robert Kennedy (1925 - 1968), his wife Ethel Kennedy (nee Skakel), and their children, as they stand on the steps outside their home, McLean, Virginia, March 1958. Pictured are, Robert Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy, who holds infant Michael (1958 - 1997), and, the children from left, Kathleen (later Kathleen Kennedy Townsend), Joseph II, Courtney (later Courtney Kennedy Hill), Robert Jr, and David (1955 - 1984).
Ethel and Jackie Kennedy in the early 1950s, probably watching their husbands duke it out in the Senate (at the time, JFK was a newly anointed Senator, and Bobby was currently leading a Racketts Committee against big company corruption).
For younger women today, she went on, “Having 11 children may not be the model to follow. It’s going forward and not complaining, having a sense of humor no matter what, that’s shaped how we all should face life.” - Ethel Kennedy
