This week on New Mexico in Focus, artist Judy Chicago stops by to talk about her nonprofit feminist organization “Through the Flower.” This is part of a national PBS special “Makers: Women Who Make America,” a film that documents how women have transformed the country over the last half-century.
New Mexico in Focus airs Friday, March 1 at 7 p.m. on Channel 5.1. and Saturday, March 2 at 5 p.m. on Channel 9.1. There are no repeats this week.
In addition, panelists take a closer look at government reform and the legislature, including the examination of a pair of legislative measures that recently met their end, what is next for the Public Regulation Commission and the brewing debate over calls for more spending in early childhood education.
