"Thank you so very much for your rousing speech at Harpeth Hall.  I am a teacher of 6th graders and I am happy to report that they were every bit as inspired, your talk as were the seniors.Thank you for providing such a wonderful role model to our girls. I truly hope that one of them WILL be a President of the United States one day."

"I so enjoyed your encouraging words for our young women here at Harpeth Hall. Your style and sense of humor served to enhance your message about leadership within. The video clip was especially inspiring. Connecting for this brief period with women in our global community was powerful. Learning that these strong women have the same struggles and concerns that we have was affirming."

"I cannot tell you how much my students and I enjoyed your speech! () I spoke with some of my girls after your visit, and we all agreed that your humor, insight, and experience made your presentation entirely enjoyable and thought-provoking.  We certainly learned a lot from you, and we hope that you will return to HH one day soon!"
Jessie Yancey

"They (the students) were empowered by your words.  We are working very hard as a 5th grade team to provide leadership opportunities for our 5th grade girls.  Even at their level and at the end of the day, I had several girls specifically come up to me and comment on how meaningful your speech was to them.  One girl told me, "I really liked what she said about leaders providing a compass."  Thank you for taking the time to come to Nashville."

With great intelligence and insight, Liswood mixes history and biography with these women's answers to probing questions. Readers will come away not only informed, but also inspired."

"Thank you so much for your phenomenal keynote address at the 2003 Arizona Women's Leadership Forum. The remarks we received about your presentation were outstanding! Your speech was both informational and inspirational. So many women came up to me at the Forum and since the Forum to tell me how fantastic you were/are."
Anne M. Hanyak

"Your speech was lively and entertaining and started the day off with a high level of energy that carried through the rest of the day. Personally, I was struck by how much you had done to advance the cause of women's leadership: how it had all started with a great idea and how you weren't held back by self doubt. What you have been able to accomplish is remarkable."

"Your presentation of Self Actualization and Leadership marked a high point for the conference and we received many comments from the Fellows afterwards about what they took away."
Center for the Study of the Presidency

"Everyone was inspired and energized by your talk. We will all have taken away much that we can 'add' to the education of girls in our schools."
