Women Make History… Women Change History.

As movements for social justice come to the forefront we recognize that women have been fighting for equality for centuries too. We’ve always made contributions and will continue to do so regardless of inequities. Some of our work goes recognized and some goes unrecognized. That is the power of women’s voices to make a difference and change the world.

Every woman’s message matters. Need some encouragement? Take a listen to a few of our long time members. You’ll be inspired by their wisdom and reminded how important you are. The value of Women Speakers Association shines through these women.

On this March 25, 2021 WSA-TV Anniversary Show episode our Premier Members share how women’s voices can change the world.

Featuring: Dr. JJ Sawyer, Mary E. Knippel, Orna Walters,
Annemarie Cross & Winnie Kamuya

Our experts share their messages for women leaders and speakers:

JJ reminds us that “WSA stands for Women Speakers Association. So many look at the title and think, “I am not a speaker so this may not be for me”. But guess what, all of us are speakers whether we’re speaking to our children, employees or clients, we are always speaking. This organization allows us the opportunity to come together and help improve our skills no matter what we do.”

Mary says “Your story matters and no one can tell your story from your perspective except you – so speak up, share your story and have the impact you are meant to have on the world.”

Orna reminds us that “Your voice matters.”

Annemarie suggests that you should “Surround yourself with others who are up to incredible things so you can learn from them, support them, etc because together we ARE better.”

Winnie shares “Women leaders and speakers provide mentorship to women who are ready to step forward and impact the world.”
