"speak-out"

The women’s liberation movement developed the “speak-out” in response to frequent occasions when women were excluded from testifying on issues that affected their lives because they were not considered to be the “experts.” First used to publicize women’s abortion experiences, speak-outs were events in which people offered first-person testimony in a public setting, asserting their authority based upon their own experiences.
