Bella Abzug: One Tough Hat-Loving Broad from the Bronx

Video: Bella Abzug - In Her Own Words

“This woman’s place is in the House — the House of Representatives.”
Bella Abzug, 1920-1998

You’re bound to see the name Bella Abzug, the late feminist activist and congresswoman from the Bronx, referenced when reading news about the current campaign season. On March 6 at the Y, her political legacy will be discussed by author and founding editor of Ms. magazine Letty Cottin Pogrebin, current Manhattan Borough President (and cousin of Abzug) Scott Stringer, Suzanne Braun Levine and Mary Thom, women’s issues experts who wrote Bella Abzug: How One Tough Broad from the Bronx Fought Jim Crow and Joe McCarthy, Pissed Off Jimmy Carter, Battled for the Rights of Women and Workers, Rallied Against War and for the Planet, and Shook Up Politics Along the Way.
