Waterstones Says

From the rabble rousing rhetoric of warrior queen Boudicca to the eloquent outrage of Greta Thunberg, the speeches collected in this handsomely produced volume - all written and delivered by women - resound with passion, intelligence and wit. Compiled by the respected Labour politician Yvette Cooper, She Speaks is an inspiring treasure trove of words to change the planet.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A treasure trove of trail-blazers... These are women who have braved discrimination, bigotry and appalling threats to their lives to ensure their voices are heard. The least we can do is listen - and marvel at the inspiration they offer us.' - Cathy Newman, presenter, Channel 4 News and author of Bloody Brilliant Women 

'Inspirational. A book to rouse the orator in all of us. An anthology of powerhouse speeches deftly deconstructed by Cooper - a speaker with poise & passion.' - Deborah Frances-White, author of The Guilty Feminist
