You've heard it before, and probably, much too much:
"Where are the women speakers?"
Maybe you were the one asking? Maybe you were the one being asked? At all too many events in all too many industries it's something that just keeps coming up.
Folks, it's 2016. There are thousands of great speakers, all over the world, who are women.
"We tried but we couldn't find any" is a cop out. Don't even get me started on "we don't want to lower the bar."
So our salute to International Women's Day (today, March 8th) is this mega-list of 150+ experienced INBOUND speakers, who just happen to also be women. Are you (or do you know someone who is) looking for great speakers? You came to the right place.

*A note on our fluidity in the total number of women - it took a while to de-duplicate our lists, and in quite a few cases, women have graced more than one INBOUND stage. This list contains +/- 155 individual women whose work you should get to know.
