Diana Mara Henry was the official photographer of the conference. Her images of the meeting, informally known as "Women on the Move," covered its entirety from November 18-21, but her photographs showed much more than a large, predominantly female gathering. Henry's images demonstrated the power of four days of grassroots activism. Her photographs are historical artifacts. They captured the evolution of American women’s rights. Candid picture upon picture show the delegates voting on twenty-six resolutions demanding federal action on pertinent issues such as sexual discrimination, reproductive rights, ageism, and civil rights. Even though those gathered at the conference were ultimately unable to ensure the passage of an overall Equal Rights Amendment, they were integral in changing women's history.
