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

Register to join the National Press Club Journalism Institute on Tuesday, September 13 at 11:30 a.m. ET 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

This program is made available at no cost thanks to a grant from the Gannett Foundation. The Institute depends on grants, foundation funds, and contributions from individuals like you to serve thousands of people daily with our newsletter, online programming, writing group, and other initiatives.
