Cecile Richards, a high-profile defender of women’s rights, will be honored with INFORUM’s 21st Century Visionary Award on October 10.  She has earned respect for her poised leadership amidst controversy, braving congressional budget debates and forcefully advocating for equal access to health care and women’s reproductive rights. Her initiatives extend far beyond the gender sector, however, and include promoting leadership programs for today’s youth and leading national health-based educational campaigns. Richards has mastered the seeming oxymoron of a gentle revolutionary, which this award recognizes, as she continues her lifelong fight to inspire women and the next generation.
