Ann Richards (September 1, 1933 - September 13, 2006) was Texas's 45th Governor from 1991-1995 and the second woman to ever hold that office. Richards was a Democrat and an outspoken feminist. She was known for her wit and sharp tongue. She was a Texas native, born in McLennan County, and was a schoolteacher before going into politics in the 1970s. Richards was defeated in the 1994 Texas gubernatorial election by George W. Bush, and remains the last Democrat to ever hold that office.
