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 she also became the target of a Washington establishment resistant to change. With her eyes set on breaking the boys’ club of the U.S. Senate or becoming New York’s first female mayor, Bella battled forces on both the right and the left, including the Nixon Administration, the CIA, the FBI, and even The New York Times. Using never-before-seen home movies, audio diaries, and rediscovered news footage, Bella! delves into a colorful and gritty era when one woman sacrificed her own political ambitions for future generations of female leadership.
