Ongoing Exhibit: "Women on the Move: The First National Women's Conference, Houston, 1977"
The National Museum of Women's History and the Wilson Center's United States Studies program is currently holding an exhibition featuring the work of photographer Diana Mara Henry. As the official photographer for the First National Women's Conference, Diana Henry had unlimited access to many of the most crucial members of the women's movement during the 1970s. Having appeared in many publications, including Newsweek's Pictures of the Year 1977, these photographs capture the experience of delegates and organizers alike throughout this historic event. Henry's career in photojournalism began at Radcliffe, as photo editor of the Harvard Crimson from 1967 to 1969. Her work focuses on the interpretation of social issues and events, including the 1972 and 1976 Democratic National Conventions, and can be found in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.
