Women’s fear of public speaking

“The communication of ideas and opinions through public speaking is one of the most influential ways of inspiring and progressing social change. However, it is also reported to be people’s number one fear. 

In particular, women can sometimes find it challenging.  Research has shown that while their primary focus is on relationships and connecting, social and cultural pressures conspire to make them uneasy about ‘standing out’ and ‘developing a public voice.’”
