Gifts of Speech: Women's Speeches from Around the World
Spied an interesting link within a comment at em dash's very nice site, Unbossed. I found this site, Gifts of Speech, dedicated to archiving women's speeches from around the world, to be very worthy of my time.
For instance, Wangari Maathai discusses the importance of education and establishing a connection with the world. And here, Meredith Monk talks about art and imagination.
Plenty more inspiration can be found within the site.
