She Speaks
She Speaks: The Power of Women's Voices | Yvette Cooper
3 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
A powerful celebration of brilliant speeches by women throughout the ages, from Boudica to Greta Thunberg. 'A treasure trove of trailblazers...' Cathy Newman Looking at lists of the greatest speeches of all time, you might think that powerful oratory is the preserve of men. But the truth is very different - countless brave and bold women have used their voices to inspire change, transform lives and radically alter history. In this timely and personal selection of exceptional speeches, Yvette Cooper MP tells the rousing story of female oratory. From Boudica to Greta Thunberg and Margaret Thatcher to Malala, Yvette introduces each speech and demonstrates how powerful and persuasive oratory can be decidedly female. Written by one of our leading public voices, this is an inspirational call for women to be heard across the globe.

I was really pleasantly surprised by the bipartisan and diverse selection of speeches in this collection. Personal favourites of mine include speeches by Sojourner Truth, Marie Colvin, Julia Gillard, Kavita Krishnan, Michelle Obama, and Jacinda Ardern. She Speaks is a quick but powerful read, and hopefully a sign of more such collections to come. Full review here: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/new-releases/
