Kate Michelman is one of the most respected and influential women leaders in America today.  For nearly 20 years, she served as President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, catapulting the organization to prominence as the nation’s premier reproductive rights group—an achievement that has earned her a reputation as a nationally recognized expert not only on women’s issues but also on grassroots organizing and strategic organizational development. Under Kate’s leadership, NARAL Pro-Choice America transformed the political debate and positioned a woman’s right to choose as a fundamental American liberty. She has also been an academic, consultant and author of her memoir With Liberty and Justice For All: A Life Spent Protecting the Right to Choose.  Kate has advised Presidents, Cabinet Secretaries and Senators and was named one of Vanity Fair Magazine’s America’s 200 Women Legends and Leaders.
