Readers who are fans of The Eloquent Woman on Facebook see these good reads, resources and ideas from other sources there, in addition to posts from the blog. Want to keep up with them? Here are the finds I shared in the week just past:
- Dancing in the street: 100 years ago on March 3, some 5,000 women marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, to protest the lack of votes for women. The Library of Congress shares rich resources about the march here, and the National Mall and Memorial Parks Facebook page shared the photo of what the scene looked like, above right.
- Let's get small: If you hate small talk, here's how to make it work for you, from the Glass Hammer blog. And here are more tips for working the room when you're the shyest person in it, via LinkedIn.
- What makes a good question from the audience? "The people who do ask a question have demonstrated to themselves that they have good enough judgment to be able to put something into the world that hasn't been said before," says marketing thought leader Seth Godin.

- Negotiate that pay raise...how? The good news: Women can successfully negotiate raises. The bad news? It takes acting feminine and apologetic.
- Let's meet in London: I'm giving the closing keynote at the spring Leadership & Communication Conference of the European Speechwriter Network and the UK Speechwriters Guild, which attracts speechwriters and speaking pros from the UK, Europe, the U.S. and beyond. The meeting takes place 15-17 May, and readers of The Eloquent Woman will get a 10 percent discount by registering with the code "Eloquent Woman."
