Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator from Texas who captured the attention of the nation when she filibustered a Republican-led abortion bill, will speak at a National Press Club luncheon August 5.

Davis’s 13-hour filibuster made her a national figure and she has been mentioned as a gubernatorial candidate in Texas. A graduate of Harvard Law, Davis was a single mother at 19 and worked two jobs to finance her education culminating in her degree from Harvard. She was the first in her family to receive a college degree.

Davis will speak of the political climate in Texas and Washington and her future plans.
