We're together in NYC with the iconic Cecile Richards. Cecile is the president of Planned Parenthood, and announced earlier this year that she's stepping down. She tells us why she's leaving, how she felt after testifying before Congress for nearly five hours, and what's next. (A political career perhaps?) Her new book is Make Trouble with the #goals subtitle Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead--My Life Story. Come for the juicy behind-the-scenes memoir about the fight for repro rights and her front-row seat to her mom (and former Texas governor) Ann Richards' life and career. Stay for practical and inspiring ways to lead and make social change.
