David Robinson

Today, let’s look at some famous speeches that changed the world. Here is a selection.

“Freedom or death” – In the struggle to get women the vote, Great Briton Emmeline Pankhurst made her famous speech in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, on the 13th November 1913.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” was said by Franklin D. Roosevelt on the 4th March 1933.
