LATEST BLOG

After four years of performing solo – well, there are about forty women in the show  whose stories I tell, talk about, show pictures of (and I portray about eight of ‘em), SHE’S HISTORY! is now A PLAY WITH A FULL CAST!! This has always been my plan and I have been newly inspired by The Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative (http://lafpi.com). I am SO excited about it for SO many reasons. I think having a full cast will make it easier to get these stories out there. And we DEFINITELY need more plays with great parts for women! I have cast a load of fabulous females to play the fabulous females. It WILL BE fabulous! The first reading is Saturday June 21st at The famed Samuel French Bookshop in Los Angeles.

YES – this is ELIZABETH WARREN and ME!!!!!! She was in Los Angeles on her “A Fighting Chance” book tour. I am madly, deeply, politically and philosophically in love with this fantastic Senator! Her book is a page-turning MUST READ! Really!!! Here is one of her inspiring stores that she shared with us. When Elizabeth Warren was on the campaign trail in Massachusetts, there were many little girls at her rallies. They had prepared questions and one little asked her, “What events in your life led you to run for the Senate?” So Elizabeth would get down on one knee, and look the little girl in the eye and say: “My name is Elizabeth Warren and I am running for the Senate because that is what little girls do.”

Can you stand it?!

***********************

Texas, November 19th, 1977 The Spirit Of Houston

Trail Blazing, Hat-Wearing, Peace-Making Bella Abzug – who joined Congress at the age of fifty – pulled off another miracle, organizing The National Women’s Conference which she got the government to pay for!  A Fabulous Federal First and a major major coup! With a “special emphasis on the representation of low-income women, members of diverse racial, ethnic, and religious groups, and women of all ages,” every state was represented with two thousand delegates, along with eighteen-thousand women and supportive men, many husbands, who supported their wives by carrying their little babies so the moms could go to meetings.  Also carried – a torch from Seneca Falls, New York (home of the First Women’s Conference in 1848) to Houston, Texas.  It was presented to Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford and Rosalyn Carter who said it was“…the most important and exciting conference I have ever attended”.  Also on hand, Coretta Scott King, Maya Angelou, Billie Jean King and of course the glorious Gloria Steinem, to name a few. The thirty-fifth Anniversary of this historic event is being celebrated in Manhattan, Monday, November 19th 2012, with yours truly speaking as Bella Abzug.
