Women have been speaking in public for centuries, including women right here in the Rivertowns. But you’d never know it from the history books. Overwhelmingly they make it seem as if only men were powerful at the podium.
So who were all these overlooked women speakers? Irvington resident Dana Rubin will tell us in this interactive talk. She did the research and created the world’s largest women’s speech archive, “The Speaking While Female Speech Bank.” She’ll us about the hidden history of women’s speech, with the spotlight on women from our own backyard.
Dana Rubin is a communications coach who helps companies develop their female talent. She leads workshops in public speaking and communication skills, and she speaks on “The Secret History of Women’s Speech.” She’s working on an anthology of speeches by American Women, to be published in late 2021. She’s lived in Irvington for six years.
