An accessible, timely and practical handbook for women on speaking out safely and confidently from no.1 non-fiction bestseller Tara Moss. Worldwide, less than one out of every four people we hear from or about in the media is female, and men outnumber women in parliament by more than three to one. If half of humanity's experiences, perspectives and possible solutions to world problems are under-represented, or entirely unheard, all of us lose out. Tara Moss has spent 20 years in the public sphere and has had to face down nerves, critics and backlash to emerge as a leader in speaking out. In this handbook she offers advice on preparation, speaking out and negotiating public spaces. With a special focus on public speaking, writing, social media and online safety, she offers tips on how to research, form arguments, find support and handle criticism. This is a guide for women young and old that not only helps them find their voice, but argues passionately for why it matters. PRAISE FOR SPEAKING OUT 'To say this book is timely is to put it mildly ... It should be mandatory reading for every teenage girl, let alone women in general.' Weekly Times 'This book by Tara Moss is so very important. It has been an eye-opening read for me and it has changed my life. If every young man and every young woman was given a copy of this book it would make so many small changes in individual behaviours that we might just be able to begin to tackle a problem that is often invisible to us' Krissy Kneen, Avid Reader 'Moss provides clear, simple strategies to cope with the often disproportionately agressive response women receive when they speak out' Jane Gilmore, Guardian Australia 'Written specifically to help women combat the unacceptable challenges they face when telling their stories in public in the age of online trolling. It deconstructs abuse and belittling techniques in an enormously helpful way.' Clare Bowditch 'We think this is a handbook for every woman in the world.' Ramona magazine 'Can't recommend it enough - every girl ought to have a copy!' Virginia Gay, ABC Book Club TV

Read this first, then give this book to your daughters and grandaughters.
Clear and punchy in the way she presents each chapter.
e.g."Speaking your trauma"
"Unsocial social media"
"How to recognize a diversion",the chapter which contains a brilliant 'Antifeminist Gaslighting Bingo'card.
