A powerful celebration of 30 brilliant speeches by women throughout the ages, from Joan of Arc to Michelle Obama, that have inspired change and altered the course of history.

Looking at the greatest speeches of all time, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Elizabeth I and Boudica were about the only women to have dipped a toe into the pool of public oratory. 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 anthology, Yvette Cooper MP tells the story of 30 inspirational speeches given by women. From Boudica to Margaret Thatcher and from Malala to gun-control activist Emma Gonzalez, each speech will be reproduced in full and introduced by Yvette. This is not only a much-needed celebration of women's speeches throughout history, but also proof that powerful and persuasive oratory can be decidedly female.
