Book description
Why are we so completely blown away for the whole nine minutes and forty seconds of Oprah Winfrey's speech at The Golden Globes? What is it about the power of Virginia Woolf's 1928 lecture, which grew into A Room Of One's Own, that makes it resonate with us still nearly a century later? Why do more people quote Michelle Obama's 'When they go low, we go high' than any speech from her husband's eight-year presidency? What is it that women do when they make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can we all get a bit more of that in our own lives? How Women Own the Room explores the presence, performance and authenticity of recent history's great women speakers, and reveals what they do when they deliver those game-changing moments so that you can apply their qualities to your own life. From great political leaders and stand-up comedians, to campaigners and feminists, this is a powerful little book about what happens when women find their voice.
