Join us for a special one-off conversation with author of Outspoken, Deborah Coughlin and Kate Hutchinson, New York Times journalist, to celebrate the launch of the book Outspoken: 50 Speeches by Incredible Women from Boudicca to Michelle Obama. It is one of the first ever published collections of speeches by inspirational women, which includes speeches from Joan of Arc, Virginia Woolf, Michelle Obama and Jameela Jamil, helping us to understand our history and how we arrived at this point.
From Jesus to Winston Churchill to Martin Luther King Jr, we’veMM been raised with the words of important men ringing in our ears, whilst women have been systematically silenced and erased from history. In this talk member’s will hear what we’ve been missing…
Outspoken is a collage of female empowerment, covering key topics including the body, freedom, politics and love, and is ultimately a celebration of outstanding women everywhere who took the risk of being loud, even when the chances of being heard were so small.
Outspoken is a book to cherish, to look through and remind us that we are not alone, we can take up space, it’s the perfect thank you to women everywhere who continue to speak out and demand to be heard.
