Speaking While Female

Historically, women have been nearly absent from the record of public speaking, with their speeches seldom respected or remembered. In an effort to change that, a new initiative showcases women speakers from antiquity to the present, and around the world. Ida B. Wells on lynching. Rose Schneiderman on the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Alexandra Kollontai on revolution. Oprah at the Golden Globes. They’re all here, and hundreds more, with transcripts, video, and, in some cases, audio. Are there historically significant speeches by women you’d like them to include?
