Rubin is the creator of the “Speaking While Female Speech Bank” — the world’s largest online archive of women’s speeches. Contrary to what we may think, the greatest speeches in history weren’t just given by “great men.” Rubin has unearthed many remarkable speeches and papers delivered by women in science. She’ll be sharing a few examples, as well as tips and strategies for putting our knowledge, our insights, and our voices into the marketplace of ideas.

Rubin is a speechwriter, speech coach, and speaker who advocates for women’s voice. Her mission is to set the record straight on who actually gave the great speeches in history and to inspire women to speak out and share their expertise in the public square.
