What She Said
The Art of Inspiring Action Through Speech
Learn how spoken words can change a mind, a community and the world with this collection of remarkable speeches by women.
Author Monica Lunin has curated and analysed 40 of the greatest speeches made by strong and empowering women from all around the world.
From Queen Elizabeth I to Maya Angelou, Greta Thunberg, Julia Gillard and Michelle Obama, What She Said shows not only what was said but also how the speech worked and why it was effective.
You will learn how these women:
- Inspired, move, and persuaded an audience
- Understood and empathised with a crowd
- Effectively argued a position
- Opened hearts and minds
- Shared your thoughts and insights
What She Said is a must-read for anyone looking for practical and relevant lessons on oratorical leadership.
A little bit about the speaker, the occasion, and the challenge that each woman faced, before taking to the stage.
Either the entire speech or a substantial excerpt (if it is a long one!) Immerse yourself in the words that made a difference.
Discover ‘how she did that’ in the form of three nuggets of wisdom from each speech to help you develop your own communication power.

About The Author
Monica Lunin is a communications expert, speaker and writer based in Sydney Australia. She is the co-owner of MOJOLOGIC, a consultancy that specialises in developing the skills of communication, influence and leadership.

Why I Wrote This Book
“If you were to pull down from the bookshelf any anthology of famous speeches you would likely find the content overwhelmingly skewed towards men. I have found such speeches to be sources of inspiration and instruction throughout my life and now is the time to feature the often overlooked but immensely powerful speeches by women.”

Let’s work together to make a difference at your next event. Topics include:
The myths and truths of women and communication
Women don’t need to be fixed, but they do need to be listened to. We will explore some of the false assumptions you might be making about how women do and should communicate as well as some time-honoured truths to help your public speaking power.
Finding your voice
The practice of public speaking can be scary. Everybody has to start somewhere and where YOU start is individual and highly personal. Let’s stop trying to imitate the way somebody else does it and figure out how you can develop your own voice because the world needs your ideas. Learn to speak with an eloquence that is entirely your own.
Leader as Communicator
So many aspects of successful leadership come back to the foundation skill of communication. How to transfer ideas? How to align behaviour? How to motivate people? How to make people feel a sense of belonging, pride or urgency? Level up your leadership by levelling up your communication.
