welcome the eloquent woman blog

We've launched a sister blog, so to speak, at The Eloquent Woman, with "Inspiration, ideas and information to help women speak in public settings, from a conference room to a convention." On it, you'll find such features as:
- a poll to gauge readers' views on issues related to women and public speaking. The inaugural poll quizzes you about your public speaking fears.

- a newsfeed on eloquent women, and women and public speaking, so you can keep up with the latest headlines--it goes well beyond a woman candidate for US President, trust us.

- searchable, practical public speaking tips, so you can easily navigate to find the news you can use to improve your skills.

- coverage of role models, past and present, to inspire you. We've started with the two most influential First Ladies, Lady Bird Johnson and Eleanor Roosevelt. And if you want to join our current discussion on Linked In about the most eloquent woman you've heard or seen speak, go here. The nominees so far range from Palestinian scholar and spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi to the late U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, and include poets, politicians, leaders of small nonprofits and schoolteachers. Join the discussion!

-new research on gender issues in speaking, with advice on how to navigate the challenges and opportunities that women face when speaking in settings large and small.
Comments are welcome on the new blog,and we hope you'll add your questions, experiences and ideas!
