Praise for Lisa’s speaking engagements
“I was so inspired by your speech at Sister Giant that I began looking into law schools to help fight for civil rights myself! I am a mixed black woman who passes for white. I am hard of hearing in a hearing-biased world and I am disgusted with the treatment of minorities and the disabled in America. I’m also the current head/speech writer for Randi Zuckerberg and her show Dot Complicated. If you are ever seeking help at your law firm or in your speaking career, I would be honored to be at your service. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me. I am honored to have heard you speak.” – Natasha Lewin, Speech Writer for Randi Zuckerberg and Dot Complicated
“Lisa, thank you for choosing to speak again to the women of IWLC. For this first IWLC conference in the Siouxland region, I wanted our speakers to demonstrate what I mean by ‘elevating the conversation’ and you immediately came to mind. As before, your thought provoking, passionate and articulate presentation delivered! Wearing all my hats – daughter, wife, sister, stepmom, nana, aunt, girlfriend, boss and mentor, I embrace your challenge to women – to be the smartest and best we can be. Thank you for being you!” – Diane Ramsey, CEO, IWLC

“Since she’s a top graduate from Yale Law School and she was National College Debating Champion, I expected Lisa to be well-prepared and to know her stuff backwards and forwards, and she did. What I didn’t expect was how entertaining she was! I was in stitches at times, and at others genuinely moved by Lisa’s obviously heartfelt words. What a speaker!” – Julia Greer, Esq., Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass, San Francisco, CA
“As a speaker, Lisa Bloom is energetic, funny, and refreshingly candid about her experiences and her views, which are informed by over a decade of litigating high-profile civil rights cases. She knows how to get her message across to a wide audience. She is a good listener, too. The result is that she shares her passion for equality and fairness with her audience. Her vision is a world in which each of us, regardless of our individual differences, is able to freely contribute to society with dignity. I’d gladly live in her world any day.” – Judith B. White, Professor, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth University

Lisa Bloom speaking at a Martin Luther King Jr. event in St. Louis hosted by the St. Louis Jewish Community Center and St. Louis Urban League – January 14, 2015.
Lisa’s first book, Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World, www.Think.tv, became an instant New York Times bestseller, rocketing up the book charts as buzz in book groups and television talk shows agreed that we have a problem, and it’s time to start talking solutions. Lisa is now delivering college commencement addresses and speaking to business, professional and student groups on the important topic of how tabloid media, celebrity culture and our culture’s emphasis that females be “hot” at every age is harming us, our nation, and our planet, and what specifically we can do to reclaim our brains.
She’s been inside every major television network in the United States as a much-requested legal commentator. What’s happened to investigative journalism, political commentary, “fair and balanced,” and tough questions? Lisa’s powerful indictment of the media’s obsession with inane celebrity “news” to the exclusion of important stories is peppered with colorful anecdotes she’s witnessed first-hand.
Housework is Not Your Job, and Other Truths Girls of All Ages Need to Hear
Working women still spend three times as many hours vacuuming and scrubbing toilets as their husbands. Why? Because women have swallowed the lie that it’s our job, while men rest comfortably knowing it’s “women’s work.” Time to teach our daughters the real truths they need to know: housework is a chore to be farmed out, divvied up, or sold to another working woman who’s made it her business. Other truths: sexual harassment is not possible, it’s probable, so women must arm themselves with an advance game plan to combat the harasser’s element of surprise; married women need to earn, and keep separately, their own money and assets; and it’s possible to network with male business associates without it looking like a “date.” Lisa explains all these truths and more in this high-spirited program.
