After the excitement of discovering that women are not yet so downtrodden that they’re afraid to speak out against a group of rioting youths, I’ve begun a tribute thread in the name of outspoken, revolutionary women and their impromptu speeches.
A common theme in the vids is that all the women’s speeches are unplanned and off the cuff, but exceptionally articulate. WOmen are generally not given a platform in public life, not for the real issues, not for the things that matter, so we have to grab any oppportunity we can and SPEAK. Women step up to the task and it looks like your average woman has a speech up her sleeve at any given moment.
The brave and historical speech of Malalai Joye in a room full of Afghan warlords. SHe was thrown out and later hounded at her hotel and threatened with violence.
Okay, that was only two so far. But there are many more out there. I’m searching for one in particular where a female congresswoman in the U.S attacks male politicians for disrespecting women. In the meantime, feel free to add your own 🙂
