As you go to the polls on this Election Day, we profile the life and legacy of Bella Abzug, a New York political icon who inspired a generation of women and change. We’ll talk with four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein about becoming Bella in his new one-person show. Bella’s daughter Liz tells us how she’s continuing her mother’s legacy and shaping a new generation of women leaders through the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute.
