Bella! This Woman’s Place is in The House

October 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

Sponsored by the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival

In 1970, Bella Abzug entered Congress ready for a fight. With her trademark hat and Bronx swagger, the first elected Feminist upended the Washington patriarchy, battling for women’s equality, civil rights, and LGBTQ protections.

But, the most recognizable woman in politics also became the target of a Washington establishment resistant to change. With her eyes set on breaking the boys’ club of The US Senate or becoming New York’s first female mayor, Bella battled mounting forces from both the right and the left, and the powers of the Nixon Administration, the CIA, FBI, even The New York Times.

Using never-before-seen home movies, audio diaries, and a vast trove of newly-discovered news footage, Bella! This Woman’s Place is in The House delves into a colorful and gritty era where one woman sacrificed her own political ambitions for future generations of female leadership.

After the film, join the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival for a New York “deli” reception at Temple Beth Shalom at 205 E Barcelona Road, Santa Fe. Enjoy a sampling of New York deli specialties to celebrate Bella, one of the best known New Yorkers!
