I've Got This
"When I went to testify before Congress while I was working for Planned Parenthood, and I passed hundreds and hundreds of women in pink t-shirts on the way in."
If the name Cecile Richards rings a bell, it might be because she is the New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble. Or perhaps you know her as one TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World (in both 2011 and 2012). The former President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund — where, for 12 years, she worked to increase affordable access to reproductive health care and to build a healthier and safer world for women and young people —Cecile is a national leader for women’s rights and social and economic justice, and now, the cofounder of Supermajority, a new organization fighting for gender equity.
