Episode 172: Speaking While Female

This episode takes a step back in time to look at the history of women as public speakers, and how the past relates to the present. If you look at history books or speech anthologies, you might assume women didn't say very much in public until the 20th century. But that's far from the case. My guest, speechwriter and coach Dana Rubin, has compiled a speech bank of women's speeches going back hundreds of years. Women were speaking's just that HIStory wasn't interested. And that legacy, Dana argues, affects the way women see themselves as speakers today.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
