She Speaks: The Power of Women's Voices [9781786499929]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Looking at the greatest speeches of all time, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Elizabeth I and Boudica were about the only women to have dipped a toe into the pool of public oratory.

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 anthology, Yvette Cooper MP tells the story of 30 inspirational speeches given by women.

From Boudica to Margaret Thatcher and from Malala to gun-control activist Emma Gonzalez, each speech will be reproduced in full and introduced by Yvette.

This is not only a much-needed celebration of women's speeches throughout history, but also proof that powerful and persuasive oratory can be decidedly female.


AUTHOR: Yvette Cooper is the Labour MP for Normanton, Pontefract, Castleford and Knottingley. She served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Gordon Brown as Chief Secretary to the Treasury and Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Since 2016 she has been chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee and more recently she has been a prominent and vocal campaigner in the Brexit process. She studied at Oxford, Harvard and LSE.
