Cecile Richards / Ann Richards / "Let the People In"

Posted on March 28, 2013 at 4:07 PM
I thought I'd write a little bit about those marvelous Richards gals today:


On the recent anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, PPFA President Cecile Richards had this to say:

“The Affordable Care Act is the single biggest advancement in women’s health in a generation and is already making a big difference in the lives of women across the country. Women of all walks of life are starting to get both birth control and important well-woman checkups at no cost for the first time,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

“As the nation’s leading women’s health care provider and advocate, Planned Parenthood knows firsthand how important the Affordable Care Act is to women. When women have access to the full range of birth control options without a co-pay, they benefit, their families benefit, and we all benefit. That is why we’re so pleased that the Obama administration has been clear that insurance companies must cover the full range of FDA-approved types of birth control.  We will continue our work to ensure that all women – no matter where they live or who their boss is – have access to these benefits,” said Richards. 


Cecile's wonderful mother, Ann Richards, is the subject of a new book published by the University of Texas Press entitled Let the People In.  I've got a copy of this book on my nightstand right this minute and am close to finishing it; it's a fantastic look at the meteoric rise of a truly fearless lady. 

I remember being a student at UT when Ann Richards became our governor, and singing carols at the governor's mansion Christmas parties with the UT Concert Chorale.  This book paints a behind-the-scenes picture of that time for me, and illustrates what a group of close-knit friends can do if they put their minds to something great.  (Sound familiar, gals?)

Brady Dyer, who is the head of marketing over at the UT Press, has personally donated a copy of Let the People Inalong with a very sturdy UT Press canvas book bag for our raffle this year!  (Thanks, Brady!)  You can check out the current list of raffle items over on the home page.


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and thanks for all you do!

-Rebecca
