Cecile Richards Has Advice for New Activists

This is definitely a must read.  I don't where I've been but I didn't know she was Ann Richards's daughter.  She is leaving Planned Parenthood after 12 years. She feels it's time for the next generation to take it.   Ceclile Richards has been an activist her whole life and a take no shit women.  She had a great example with her mother.  When I watch someone like her I'm envious of the way she doesn't care what anyone thinks.  I'm still working towards that.  I've always been a late bloomer.  Are you a closet activist? I would love to read your comments below. : )
