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.
