Speaking While Female: 50 Extraordinary Speeches by American Women tells the story of women’s voices in America – through the words of the activists, advocates, dreams and doers who created this country. This volume is an inspiration — and an invitation to women and girls to step up, speak out, and use their voices to create a better world.

“We all know the phrase, “If you can see it, you can be it.” Thanks to Dana, we can now clearly see it – that women have been speaking up and changing the world with their voices, for centuries.”
– Christa Dhimo, Northeastern University College of Science

*… an excellent resource for companies and organizations that want to engage and inspire their talented women and help them claim their public voices as brand ambassadors, spokespeople, and communicators.
– Rob Lewis, IBM

*……. an absolutely stunning achievement and a monumental gift.”
– Hannah Rubenstein, The Speakers Guidebook
