‘Listen, World!’: Women’s voices in the news, then and now
Elsie Robinson was America’s most-read woman for decades, reaching 20 million people with her weekly “Listen, World!” newspaper column. And yet most of us have never heard of her. A new book about her work and impact inspired this program on women’s voices, lost and found, then and now.

Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute at 11:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday, September 13 for a wide-ranging conversation about how women’s voices have been silenced and spotlighted in newsrooms and in the public square, and how we can ensure that journalism raises up a diversity of women’s perspectives in the future.

The conversation will feature:

- Soraya Chemaly, award-winning author of “Rage Becomes Her,” co-founder of the Women’s Media Center Speech Project
- Deborah Douglas, co-editor-in-chief of The Emancipator
- Allison Gilbert, journalist and co-author of “Listen, World!”
- Dana Rubin, author of “Speaking While Female”
- Connie Schultz, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, novelist, professor

The conversation will be moderated by Julie Moos, the Institute’s Executive Director, who can also answer any questions about this program at jmoos@press.org.

The first 10 people who register will receive a free copy of “Listen, World!: How the intrepid Elsie Robinson became America’s most-read woman.” To be eligible, you must provide a mailing address when you register.

Sep 13, 2022 11:30 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
