Cecile Richards: President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
Katrina Heron, Editor-at-Large, Newsweek and The Daily Beast - Moderator
This year, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading provider of sexual and reproductive health care for women, found itself at the center of a congressional budget debate over abortion that almost shut down the United States government. Calling it the “most devastating assault on women’s health in American history,” Planned Parenthood and President Richards vowed to continue providing affordable health care to women across the United States. Named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2011, Richards is one of the country’s leading voices in support of women’s rights, sex education and reproductive health. The daughter of Ann Richards, former governor of Texas, Cecile will speak about the current status of women’s health care in this country and what lies ahead for her organization.
