BOOK CLUB: Speaking Out by Tara Moss

Tara Moss is currently the bestselling author of 11 books published in 19 countries. Yes, that’s right – ELEVEN. Her newest book ‘Speaking Out: A 21st Century Handbook for Women & Girls’ is a must read as Moss explains how to be in the public sphere and how to act/react in public situations.

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 underrepresented, or entirely unheard, all of us lose out.

Highlights include;

– Tips for Public Speaking

– Handling Criticism (a chapter I definitely needed in university…)

– Knowing How and When To Say No

– A Basic Glossary of Internet Terms (revenge porn, sock puppet, flaming, happy slapping, sexting AND MORE…)

– Surviving Social Media

– Tips From Women Who Have Been There
