The Bella Abzug Leadership Institute has announced that it will host the "Freedom on Our Terms" Women's Conference on November 10-11 at Hunter College in New York City.

Television personality Rosie O'Donnell will present a keynote speech, and feminist icon Gloria Steinem will participate in a panel discussion. Other speakers include Carol Jenkins, president of The Women's Media Center; Lupe Anguiano, delegate to the 1977 National Women's Conference; Marie Wilson, president of the White House Project; Liz Abzug, founder of the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute; Ellie Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation; and Kim Gandy, president of the National Organization for Women.

BALI has taken the lead in organizing the "Freedom on Our Terms" conference with the assistance of over 50 cosponsoring women's and girls' organizations. The conference will include roundtable discussions, plenary sessions, workshops, issue caucuses, and music.

The conference celebrates the 30th anniversary of the first National Women's Conference, first held in Houston in 1977. Participants at the 2007 conference will examine the 26 planks from the original National Plan of Action adopted in 1977, which dealt with all aspects of women's lives; boldly strategize to update the platform to the present; and identify and target goals for the future.

Hunter College is located at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City. For more information on the conference, go to www.abzuginstitute.org/news.htm. (The Advocate)
