About the Exhibit:
"Women on the Move" - an exhibit by the official photographer of the President's Commission on International Women's Year - Diana Mara Henry - reaches out in an homage to Bella Abzug and reconnects participants of the First National Women's Conference, renewing the commitment of those glory days.
