A collection of twenty stories from the front lines of free speech captures the essence of the debate over free expression in a post-9/11 world, from a Puerto Rican journalist who is willing to risk prison to protect her sources to a fireman fighting for the right to read Playboy at work. (Current Affairs)
Studying a broader period than its contemporaries, this comprehensive study reveals a neglected tradition of British women’s writing from the Victorian era to the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Outspoken Women brings together the many and varied non-fictional writings of British women on sexual attitudes and behaviour, beginning nearly a hundred years prior to the ‘second wave’ of feminism. Commentators cover a broad range of perspectives and include Darwinists, sexologists, and campaigners against the spread of VD, as well as women writing about their own lives and experiences. Covering all aspects of the debate from marriage, female desire and pleasure, to lesbianism, prostitution, STDs, and sexual ignorance, Lesley A. Hall studies how the works of this era didn’t just criticise male-defined mores and the ‘dark side’ of sex, but how they increasingly promoted the possibility of a brighter view and an informed understanding of the sexual life. Hall’s remarkable anthology is an engaging examination of this fascinating subject and it provides students and scholars with an invaluable source of primary material.
50 Speeches by Incredible Women from Boudicca to Michelle Obama
Author: Deborah Coughlin
Pubpsher: Random House
Category: Literary Collections
History didn’t listen to women, but that never stopped them from speaking out ... A lot of history is made up of speeches. Speeches about big ideas, celebratory speeches, rousing speeches to inspire soldiers to fight to the death, comic speeches to help us see the funny side to life. From Jesus to Winston Churchill to Martin Luther King Jr. and even Donald Trump, we’ve been raised with the words of important men ringing in our ears ... But where are all the women? Unless you’re the type of person who loves researching suffrage speeches, you are unlikely to know many soundbites from women throughout history. Outspoken: 50 Speeches by Incredible Women is going to change that. From Joan of Arc and Virginia Woolf, to Oprah Winfrey and Greta Thunberg, this is a celebration of outstanding and outspoken women everywhere.

Before becoming an author, I would stay silent on many things in life such as the bullying I endured or my struggles with mental health. I always had a gift but didn't know how to use it up until I morphed into a professional. I was scared to speak my mind because I was afraid of how the world would perceive me. I didn't want anyone treating me a certain way. I did my best to play my part and keep things zipped until I realized how destructive people pleasing was. A brother wasn't aligned with his divine purpose and the only way I would be able to ascend is if I abandoned my fears and walked forward into light with faith by my side...
For the girl who refuses to eat For the girl who wants to be invisible For the girl on stage For the girl with the baby in her belly For the girl on the team For the girl who is wrongly labeled For the girl who is about to give up For the girl who is not afraid to be OUTSPOKEN
