Ann Richards. Democratic Governor of Texas in the early 90s. Outspoken feminist who entered politics in her 50s after having been a stay-at-home mom and community leader for many years. Who I want to be when I grow up.

Born September 1, 1933, Ann Richards was the first woman to be elected governor of Texas in her own right. Her leadership inspired a generation of women and marked a turning point for Democratic politics in the state—what she called the "New Texas." Ann's fight to open doors for women and people of color led to a watershed moment for equal rights in Texas and beyond. Thank you, Ann.
