“Cecile Richards’s story is powerful and infinitely readable. Whether you are newly ‘woke,’ a longtime activist, or just a caring citizen wondering how to advance democracy in hard times, Make Trouble has the answers. Cecile takes the mystery out of activism, gives you practical examples of how it’s done, and tells stories that melt the distance from your front porch to Washington. She is the best teacher on earth—someone you trust.”
President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, daughter of the late Governor Ann Richards, featured speaker at the Women’s March on Washington, and a “heroine of the resistance” (Vogue), Cecile Richards has spent a lifetime fighting for social justice and women’s rights. Now, after years of advocacy, resistance, and progressive leadership, she shares her story for the first time in the eagerly anticipated memoir, Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead.

“Cecile Richards is whip-smart, clear-eyed, quick-witted, level-headed and lion-hearted. She employs all of these virtues in her fight for women’s health and women’s rights. She’s also employed them in the writing of this wonderful memoir Make Trouble. The book, like its author, is a powerhouse.”
