Knowledge is Power: Meet Deborah Coughlin
“History didn’t listen to women, but that never stopped them from speaking out…”
We’re reminiscing over POW! Thanet when the inspirational Deborah Coughlin sat down with Amy Zing to discuss OUTSPOKEN, 50 Speeches By Incredible Women. Deborah is the author of said brilliant book which she was compelled to write when she realised how few soundbites from women were known, quoted or taught. The book covers 50 speeches by Incredible women, from Oprah Winfrey to Greta Thunberg.
Deborah joined us on International Women's Day (our favourite day of the year) and shared one of her favourite speeches by the self described 'Black, Lesbian, Mother, warrior, poet" Audre Lorde whose speech The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action discuses the importance of speaking out; 'for it is not difference which immobilises us, but silence'. Words that we wholeheartedly agree with, here at Tatty Devine.
