Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Cecile Richards Makes Trouble
Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for more than a decade, daughter of the late Governor Ann Richards, and heroine of the resistance, tells the story of her lifetime fighting for women's rights and making change. Richards had an extraordinary childhood in ultra-conservative Texas, watching her mother transform from a housewife to the straight-talking, truth-telling governor of Texas.  As a young girl, Richards witnessed the pitfalls of public life that are unique to women. Following in her mother's footsteps, Richards has made a career of fighting for social justice and women's rights.

Her experiences paint a powerful portrait of the misogyny, sexism, and violence confronting those who challenge authority. Now, she shines a light on the people and lessons that have gotten her through good times and bad, and encourages readers to take risks, make mistakes, and make trouble along the way.  Richards details her remarkable journey in her memoir, Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead.
