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.

Ann Richards, a Democrat, served as the 45th Governor of Texas from 1991 to 1995. She is one of my favourite politicians, no matter the country or era
