This book starts with a focus on the actual voice and expands out into topics like politics, women in business, Disney films, and so on. It goes all the way up to some discussion of AOC, so very current.

I appreciated practical advice like how to overcome the compulsion to speak in a hushed tone in an open office layout, how to interrupt, and a discussion of whether we should be shushing our female children. It's clear that it is not the actual voices of women that are the problem, but the presence of women, but if women are socialized for silence this is a very powerful tool. The only answer is more women!

I had a copy from the publisher through Edelweiss; the book came out June 14, 2019.
