Are you done with the mansplaining? Have you been interrupted one too many times? Don’t stop talking. Take your voice back.Women’s voices aren’t 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, they’re 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 ...

Outspoken Book Description :

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......

"Dear Christians. Some PPL are gay. Get over it. Love God." On July 24, 2013, Anglican priest Rod Bower put up these words on the roadside sign of his Gosford parish church. Next he posted them on Facebook, sparking a social media revolution. The post was shared thousands of times--suddenly the one-time butcher was on the public stage. Today Fr Rod has close to 65,000 followers on social media. He uses this platform to raise questions about Australia's corporate soul, to assert that we are all brothers and sisters--asylum seekers, Muslims, those identifying as LGBTI, Indigenous Australians . . . And for such messages, the death threats pour in. How did a shy adopted kid from the country become this steadfast conscience of Australia, preaching both pe...

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.

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 w...
