Fully updated with new preface and five new speeches for paperback edition.

A Guardian Book of the Year.

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 Chimamanda Adichie to Malala Yousafzai, 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.

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 *
Wonderful... Cooper's book is more than a woke stocking-filler; it's an urgent reminder of the current chilling climate of political violence that is aimed disproportionately at women. * Independent *
