Straight from the heart : my life in politics and other places by Ann Richards( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Straight from the Heart is Ann Richards's story, told with her trademark candor and spicy humor. Born in a tiny town near Waco, Texas, she entered politics when her husband wouldn't'and went on to become state treasurer, the first woman elected to statewide office in Texas in fifty years. She's had her victories and her battles (the breakup of a thirty-year marriage and a bout with alcohol), but it's her love of Texas and Texas politics that has made her who she is. This extraordinary memoir by one of the nation's leading politicians proves the wisdom of her observation that women "can have a good and wonderful life, but that it only begins when they accept responsibility for it, not when they expect someone else to make it happen." Richards talks openly about the course her life has taken and the choices she has made on the way. Her hard-won triumphs and savvy political career provide inspiring examples for all

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autobiography of a Crusader for women's rights and family justice. Louise Ballerstedt Raggio rose from a tiny, rural Texas home with no electricity or books to state and national capitals as a Rockefellar Scholar. She attended five years of law school at night while raising three sons. When she finally landed a job as an assistant district attorney she discovered law was a velvet prison for women. In 1952 in Texas married women had no property rights or abuse protection. Using every bit of her intelligence, skill, humor and wiles, Louise turned the "good old boy" network on its ear and began a decades-long crusade for legal equality for all women

Let the people in : the life and times of Ann Richards by Jan Reid( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Ann Richards delivered the keynote of the 1988 Democratic National Convention and mocked President George H.W. Bush--"Poor George, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth"--She instantly became a media celebrity and triggered a rivalry that would alter the course of American history. In 1990, Richards won the governorship of Texas, upsetting the GOP's colorful rancher and oilman Clayton Williams. The first ardent feminist elected to high office in America, she opened up public service to women, blacks, Hispanics, Asian Americans, gays, and the disabled. Her progressive achievements and the force of her personality created a lasting legacy that far transcends her rise and fall as governor of Texas. In Let the People In, Jan Reid draws on his long friendship with Richards, interviews with her family and many of her closest associates, her unpublished correspondence with longtime companion Bud Shrake, and extensive research to tell a very personal, human story of Ann Richards's remarkable rise to power as a liberal Democrat in a conservative Republican state. Reid traces the whole arc of Richards's life, beginning with her youth in Waco, her marriage to attorney David Richards, her frustration and boredom with being a young housewife and mother in Dallas, and her shocking encounters with Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter. He follows Richards to Austin and the wild 1970s scene and describes her painful but successful struggle against alcoholism. He tells the full, inside story of Richards's rise from county office and the state treasurer's office to the governorship, where she championed gun control, prison reform, environmental protection, and school finance reform, and he explains why she lost her reelection bid to George W. Bush, which evened his family's score and launched him toward the presidency. Reid describes Richards's final years as a world traveler, lobbyist, public speaker, and mentor and inspiration to office holders, including Hillary Clinton. His nuanced portrait reveals a complex woman who battled her own frailties and a good-old-boy establishment to claim a place on the national political stage and prove "what can happen in government if we simply open the doors and let the people in."
