INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY CELEBRATION 
Bella!

Documentary | Directed by Jeff L. Lieberman
2023 | USA | English | 102 Min. | Kaplan Theatre 

Guest Speaker Leandra Zarnow, author of Battling Bella, in attendance

Bella Abzug, daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, was a pivotal and trailblazing figure in 1970s politics. With her successful campaign for U.S. Congress, Bella took her never-say-die advocacy for equal rights and justice to Washington. Using fantastic old footage and interviews with Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Barbra Streisand and more, Jeff Lieberman’s documentary shows Bella’s lifelong activist efforts—as well as her simultaneously charming and abrasive personality—as she blazes a trail for women’s rights.

Sponsored by the Lillian Kaiser Lewis Foundation in honor Dolores Wilkenfeld

Community Partners: Houston Chapter of Hadassah, Jewish Feminist Reading Group, NCJW Greater Houston Section, Rice University’s Program in Jewish Studies
