Bella! This Woman’s Place is in The House – Bella Abzug’s career challenging the status quo and running a successful campaign all the way to the halls of Congress.
As Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi lead the nation, they travel a path blazed by several women before them, notably Bella Abzug.
In 1970, when the United States was ruled by men, Bella challenged the status quo, running a successful campaign from the streets of Manhattan that elevated her all the way to the halls of Congress.
With her trademark hat and Bronx swagger, Bella entered Congress swinging, battling for credit cards for women, equality for the LGBTQ community and trailblazing a path for leadership that reflected the broad diversity of the country.
But, the most recognizable woman in politics also became the target of a Washington establishment resistant to change.
