Women’s Room: Why does Vital Speeches still publish so many men?

The question I get asked most as editor of Vital Speeches is, “Where do you find all the speeches?”

Which I always take as a polite way of asking, “How do you get to decide?”

Of all the tens of thousands of speeches delivered in the world every month, how do we choose 10 to appear in the next issue of Vital Speeches?

My inquisitors seem disappointed and surprised to hear that some months, we have a hard time coming up with 10 that we’re truly proud to publish.
