The woman standing to to Clinton's right is Lillie Harden, a "success
story" for  "welfare reform".

The woman standing to Clinton's left and the woman standing to the left of
Lillie Harden were also former welfare recipients.
According to The New York Times:

Mr. Clinton took care to have three former welfare mothers at his side in
the sunshine as he signed the measure, praising it for restoring
''America's basic bargain of providing opportunity and demanding in return
responsibility.''
