Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month and Freegal, the free music website that gives you 5 free weekly downloads and 3 free hours of streaming music also has many great speeches. It is amazing to hear the past come alive through the human voice. Hear women like Princess Diana joke in a self-effacing manner before a serious speech.

  • Princess Diana- “Leprosy, “Aids & Substance Abuse”, “Kindness & Good Parenting”, “Land Mines”, “Leaving Public Life” from England’s Rose
  • Amelia Earhart- “On The future of Women in Flying” from The Greatest Speeches Of All-Time
  • Queen Elizabeth- “Message to the Women of Britain” from The Complete Greatest Speeches & Moments Ever
