From Cecile Richards - the president of Planned Parenthood, daughter of the late Governor Ann Richards, featured speaker at the Women's March on Washington, and "the heroine of the resistance" (Vogue) - comes a story about learning to lead and make change, based on a lifetime of fighting for women's rights and social justice.

I just finished listening to this book and the very next thing I'm going to do is listen to the whole thing all over again. It was that good.

No wait, before I listen to the book all over again I'm going to go sign up to volunteer for Planned Parenthood.

I'm in awe of Cecile Richards and her career. The number of profound political movements she's been apart of, and sometimes the leader of, in her lifetime is astounding. The stories she tells are fascinating and she tells them exceptionally well.

My one tiny criticism is that the stories are told in nothing resembling chronological order. But that one small flaw does not mar an exceptional book.
