Are you done with the mansplaining? Have you been interrupted one too many times? Dont stop talking. Take your voice back. Womens voices arent being heard at work, at home, in public, and in every facet of their lives. When they speak up, they're seen as pushy, loud, and too much. When quiet, theyre dismissed as meek and mild. Everywhere they turn, they're confronted by the assumptions of a male-dominated world. From the Supreme Court to the conference room to the classroom, women are interrupted far more often than their male counterparts. In the lab, researchers found that female executives who speak more often than their peers are rated 14 percent less competent, while male executives who do the same enjoy a 10 percent competency bump. In Outspoken , Veronica Rueckerta Peabody Awardwinning former host at Wisconsin Public Radio, trained opera singer, and communications coachteaches women to recognize the value of their voices and tap into their inherent power, potential, and capacity for self-expression. Detailing how to communicate in meetings, converse around the dinner table, and dominate political debates, Outspoken provides readers with the tools, guidance, and encouragement they need to learn to love their voices and rise to the obligation to share them with the world. Outspoken is a substantive yet entertaining analysis of why women still havent been fully granted the right to speak, and a guide to how we can start changing the culture of silence. Positive, instructive, and supportive, this welcome and much-needed handbook will help reshape the world and make it better for women and for everyone. Its time to stop shutting up and start speaking out.
