“I'm a believer in the Spiderman Principle, that with great power comes great responsibility. And influence is power. So if we seek it, we have a responsibility to share it. If we choose not to study and practice influence, we're leaving the world in the hands of the power-hungry people who do.” - Zoe Chance, a 2015 #PublicVoices Fellow, and long-time friend and champion of The OpEd Project

She recently published a book called 'Influence Is Your Superpower.' More about Zoe and her book: www.zoechance.com

Zoe is also an Alum Ambassador of The OpEd Project]. To meet her and other amazing alums like her, join our public workshops, open to all. We have scholarships available for those who would benefit: www.theopedproject.org/workshops

“A few years ago, I made a discovery — that the history books were wrong. It wasn’t just the “great men” in history who gave all the great speeches. It turns out women also, have been making important, powerful speeches, for centuries, but their words have almost completely been overlooked. Why? There’s lots of reasons. But ultimately it comes down to this: The gatekeepers of our culture — the newspapers reporters, the magazine editors, the textbook publishers, the curriculum designers, the compilers of anthologies and the curators “best of” collections — were just not interested in what women had to say. So I set out to revise our understanding of who spoke out in history. I used to have all sorts of hobbies and interests — now I spend my time digging through archives and out-of-print books, old newspapers and journals, Congressional testimony and court transcript, looking for significant speeches by women. And I’ve found them, by the thousands.” - Dana Rubin

Dana, an award-winning journalist, is an advocate for women's speech. Her goal is to inspire women and girls to use their voices and change the world. She is also a long-time Mentor-Editor with The OpEd Project.

She has compiled 50 extraordinary speeches by American women. If you'd like to support her campaign to raise money for a new anthology of women’s speech, Speaking While Female, donate by March 31st: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/speakingwhilefemale/celebrating-womens-speech

“When I was with The OpEd Project as a #PublicVoices Fellow on the Climate Crisis in 2020, my op-eds reached over a million readers. As a result, I was offered more speaking opportunities and it motivated me to pursue a different career path. Now, I work as a scriptwriter, public speaker, and Fellowship Coach/Virtual Producer with The OpEd Project.

“I’m also a blogger and was recently named by Medium as a top writer on the topic of #feminism.

“Being part of The OpEd Project inspired me to accept my role as a #thoughtleader and storyteller who can influence public discourse and have a positive impact on the world.

“My goal is to use my work to help women like me, women who have spent most of their lives facing the challenges of limited resources and having their voices silenced, to realize that their words and thoughts matter and have the power to change the course of history.” - Princella Talley

Princella is a prior-year #PublicVoices Fellow with our issue-focused Climate Crises fellowship, housed at Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. She published 10+ pieces during her year as a fellow & continues to drive key conversations forward. She is now coaching our fellowship at Rush University.

“My book, The Carriers, uncovers the stories of carriers of fragile X syndrome, a rare genetic disease. And it tells a more important story: how science and medicine benefit when women physicians really listen to their women patients. Carriers of genetic diseases are generally believed to have no symptoms, but women working together have shown us that the truth is more complicated. Isn't it always?

“I've been a psychiatrist for nearly 30 years. The OpEd Project at Columbia University in the City of New York opened my mind and gave my life a new direction at 60. The pictures represent what I love most about reporting--thinking (in my living room) and traveling (in the village of Ricaurte, Colombia, a hotspot for fragile X syndrome).” - Anne Skomorowsky, #PublicVoices Fellow The OpEd Project

“Writing for public consumption is scary. But it also offers us a shot at defining ourselves rather than letting ourselves be defined. And, even better, it lets us shine a spotlight on people whose stories and voices have, for far too long and in far too many places, gone unheard — robbing all of us of the full truth of each other’s humanity.” - Heidi Keibler Stevens, a leader with The OpEd Project

Check out Heidi’s recent column, which was written as part of her weekly gig as a nationally syndicated columnist for Tribune News Service: “How do you protect your heart during a pandemic? Maybe by attaching it to others.”: https://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/sc-fam-0111-heidi-stevens-heart-20220107-w5v37jsnw5fpplwwr3zoodcenu-story.html?fb_news_token=OlrXwG5HwZmFbTWTvhfVRA%3D%3D.m8pd13nVIzqxbI9rYV0IBPaWZ5hlN07bO4kLvrRYPHdNOtd8zjhJ4aQUW3v3I3bgBnJNLt%2BNd8zWbLGXlYpCcTux8NXtKvVbonvo7QhPN0omcBHvsc563lPTaFUfhrxO0ZkQst84LYvd7cw1mPg0VPW0Nq1ux7kS0jUQ1a5HHq45ME7xFFs%2BX8SedVwpZ4VrOthSQFVKPFLqJ8z0MM6iOcq6a44DWxmDlxyYKnTh5yUjLdLHrEiZtRIsPxa7G6knQ12fzMQBJBnRYPJxBrrJGZt%2FvSmsbvXuwnqM3xVM8b64Z7i9fceDyJ848mDKYGB%2B5xmfSBesJvJ5iFRtNJr6xOB8b3LhpsifvURRGRqz1jwNf4OWY7WAK8MXCnjegsFpL%2BxNqDB4fj3YAtMWxb5fo8JllgeqtxmsR9iNHc90%2BAY%3D&fbclid=IwAR2n3UqajqyMcFauIB4UjIyaD6jAE1vtbfwtUGkXALC3--gtMwaL6qxK6GQ

“I'm a #PublicVoices fellow on the climate crisis with The OpEd Project and The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. I write to elevate the connections and intersections between education, climate justice, and racial justice. I believe in teaching for justice, whether it's addressing connections between climate education and CRT, critical media literacy and disinformation campaigns, civic engagement and climate education, or teaching ethnic studies. I believe that environmental education can create the world we envision, and I'm proud to be a 2019 Environmental Education 30 Under 30, awarded by The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), and a 2021 Civics Environmental Education Fellow with NAAEE.” - Kimi Waite

"We must have honest, sometimes painful conversations within our respective communities about anti-Black racism and the intricate ways these messages circulate within the Asian American community – from the ways in which we are impacted by colorism, to normative comments that dehumanize Black people." - Joanne L. Rondilla, assistant professor of Sociology & Interdisciplinary Social Sciences and Asian American Studies at San Jose State University and #PublicVoices Fellow of The OpEd Project
"On Equal Pay Day this month at the White House, President Biden mistakenly referred to the vice president as the 'first lady.' After some laughter from the audience, the president corrected his mistake – it was of course Kamala Harris, not Jill Biden, who was absent. Biden’s gaffe could be considered a harmless slip of the tongue if it didn’t conform to a pattern: coded language that serves to delegitimize Harris’s influence." - Dr. Stephanie L. Wideman, #PublicVoices The OpEd Project
As part of the University of Indianapolis #PublicVoices Fellowship with The OpEd Project this year Drs. Colleen Wynn & Liz Ziff co-wrote a piece in Fair Observer. They call for white women to finally do the work to dismantle white supremacy and to help build a more equitable and just society.
"Our concern is a world where the state and prevailing political winds control what can and cannot be taught, what can and cannot be learned. What’s next? Will Lieutenant Governor Patrick follow in the footsteps of authoritarian regimes and ban certain words?" - Circe Sturm and Anthony Di Fiore, Professors of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin #PublicVoices The OpEd Project
As part of the University of Indianapolis #PublicVoices Fellowship with The OpEd Project this year Dr. Amanda Miller and Dr. Heidi Ewen (UIndy Interprofessional Health & Aging Studies Department) co-wrote an OpEd, “No Expiration Date: Sexuality for Older Women Needs Attention” in VISIBLE Magazine about the challenges of sexuality and aging.

As part of the University of Indianapolis #PublicVoices Fellowship with The OpEd Project this year, Dr. Colleen Wynn collaborated with Dr. Ana Maria Ferreira (Global Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies) on an OpEd in The Hill about the need for well-funded and accessible public transit in the United States.
"As a Black child growing up in predominately white schools and spaces, I never thought about how infrequently the faces on stage held any resemblance to my own, just as I never realized how accustomed I had grown to never seeing myself in the faces of my classmates or teachers." - Carmen Black, MD #PublicVoices The OpEd Project
"Navigating college as a working-class or first-generation college student is hard enough. Erasing these students’ stories makes it clear that mainstream television values certain sets of experiences and devalues others." - Yolanda Wiggins #PublicVoices The OpEd Project
As part of the University of Indianapolis #PublicVoices Fellowship with The OpEd Project this year Dr. Amanda Miller tapped her pop culture and family sociology knowledge to write a piece for USA TODAY on Ye and Kim Kardashian’s ongoing divorce. Dr. Miller warns that whoever you are and whatever kind of family or personal drama you have, it’s best to keep it off social media. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/columnists/2022/02/09/kanye-kardashian-divorce-social-media/6698682001/
"A country’s cultural legacy, impacts on individuals, and the long-lasting responses to conflict can remain subtext. A war in the region changes not only the immediate safety and daily life, but how people view themselves and the world for many years to come." - Dr. Katie Greenan #PublicVoices The OpEd Project
As part of the University of Indianapolis #PublicVoices Fellowship with The OpEd Project this year Dr. Colleen Wynn and colleagues Dr. Heidi Ewen (UIndy Interprofessional Health & Aging Studies Department) and Dr. Karen Newman (UIndy English Department) have co-written an OpEd “Creating Better Working Conditions in America” which appeared in the Fair Observer and proposes some creative solutions to addressing structural work issues in the US.
