Wendy Davis: From Filibuster Fame to the Race for Governor - Her "Fight for All" in the State of Texas
Wendy Davis shot to national fame in 2013 when she took to the Texas Senate floor in pink sneakers for an 11-hour filibuster to block restrictive abortion legislation. She then became the state's first female nominee for governor since Ann Richards in 1994. Join us for a conversation about Senator Davis' journey from single mom, to Harvard Law School, to Democratic icon, and what her story can teach us about women in politics and leadership.
Moderated by Professor Laura Kray, Warren E. and Carol Spieker Chair in Leadership, UC Berkeley
