Kathleen Hanna is the lead singer of the Julie Ruin and has been in bands such as Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. She also gives lectures at colleges and other places on topics such as feminism, art, activism, and punk. It’s given her a TON of practice at being in front of crowds of complete strangers, and in this video she has some personally tested public-speaking tips—plus words of (life) encouragement, including these: “This could suck. But it doesn’t really have to do with you.”
