Abstract
Reviews the book, Speaking Out: The female voice in public contexts by Judith Baxter (Ed.) (2006). The book unites a series of high quality research papers that focus on women's voices in public settings. The author's collection revisits a familiar but still pertinent preoccupation of feminism: the disadvantage faced by many women in performing in public contexts, particularly those traditionally dominated by men, imbued with 'masculinist' values and historically difficult to access for women.
