"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. Commissioners, delegates, alternates, participants and YOU are joining the conversation. These amazing women made history then and are inspiring us still today.
