60 empowering speeches celebrating women in their own words through extracts and commissioned illustrations, spanning throughout history up to the modern day.

An inspirational collection of women's speeches that have changed our world, and the conversation. So Here I Am is a celebration of empowering speeches by women throughout history and today. History has many themes, one of them is that women should be quiet'; for too long, the female voice has not been part of the public sphere, perhaps with rare exceptions. This is a celebration of women speaking up; within politics, science, human rights, TV and media - speaking out about everything from free love, anti-war, discoveries, race, gender and women's rights. With evocative and powerful illustrations from Brasilian artists, Camila Pinheiro, this anthology of great women - whose own achievements speak for themselves - is firmly a part of the modern day. Dip into this curated selection of women's voices who need to be heard, now! This shot of inspiration serves as a reminder that despite all adversity, nevertheless, she persisted.
