"Irin was phenomenal. Her timing was excellent. Everyone was so enthralled you could hear a pin drop. It was great for those of us who have read the book and watched the documentary to still learn more from Irin about RBG’s life and experience. It was especially important to hear about the reproductive rights connections to RBG. The more we can focus on access to reproductive health care, the better! Irin’s timing of the ask was perfect."
"Irin Carmon came to the Johns Hopkins University campus to speak to the undergraduate community about the effect women had on the 2012 election. Her engaging talk emphasized changing political ideologies, the large impact of social media, shifting demographics, and the future. An incredibly talented writer and speaker, Carmon gave an enlightening view of the role women will play in politics in the past, present, and future."

"Irin was spectacular at Duke! Her sharp wit, uncanny smarts, and down-to-earth candor made everyone in the room feel like they were having a conversation with a friend—a brilliant one. She crafted an engaging talk that exactly met our needs, but was also willing to respond to endless questions from eager aspiring writers. We'll be sure to have her back soon!"
"Irin spoke with about 80 Women's Medical Fund supporters, including many students and young professionals, and received high praise from all. She was engaging, well-informed, and was able to synthesize complex information such that everyone who attended had a clearer picture of the critical issues at hand. We would welcome the opportunity to have Irin come and speak again!"
