Who's the most eloquent woman speaker?

We've started a discussion on LinkedIn about the most eloquent woman you've heard or seen speak; you can see it here. The nominees so far range from Palestinian scholar and spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi to the late U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, and include poets, politicians, leaders of small nonprofits and schoolteachers. You can join the discussion on this site by adding your comments to this post. We're excited about the range and number of responses we've been getting--and we're especially interested in learning about specific speeches and the qualities you think made the speaker eloquent. The feedback we gather will be reported on this blog, and we'll use your suggestions to research and write about effective methods and inspiring role models.
