Mothers: Lauren Bacall

With their children Stephen and Leslie Bogart in New York, 1960

"I think the qualities that my mother gave me include intelligence, humor, sensitivity, the ability to scrutinize people. I feel she gave me her sense of power and her sense of strength as she deals with the world around her. And her contribution to women and to women’s issues in addition to being to a loving mother. She has also just as a woman been a great example for me." - Leslie Bogart
