Hello, women of all ages, my name is Honey and I will be speaking about a certain action that strips a woman of her life the same way they have stripped their fetus off theirs. Today we are gathered because there is an internal reason behind our secrecy in this long-term suffering. We have diverse reasons as to why we have committed the worst crime a mother could undertake; although, the action has resulted the same. The word for that action is defying in this society and it is misjudged. No human being should have the pleasure of having no emotions of remorse after being removed from the reason of their womanship. It is convenient to have to undergo the removing of a special gift inside of you, just to put a sign of relief on your partner’s behalf or of your own. Relief is signified as a momentarily feeling of liberty, liberty which as we all may know, is momentarily as well. I have made in my past the decision to give in to pressure and fate. I made the wrong decision. I let myself be driven by anger and doubt. Oh how much I did! I doubted the paternity of the life I carried inside of me, I doubted the fidelity of my spouse, and I doubted my economical status once the baby were to be born. I could not have regretted the decision of giving permission to the killing of my son more than I do now. If there is anything I am left to say is that life continues to flourish and it always gives you another chance to live beyond your mistakes. Never give up on redefining your own self and be proud of your uprisal. The famous word no person is able to make out of their mouths is Abortion. Thankyou for your time.
Hello men, my name is George, how are you all? I am here to talk to all of you about our wives. Is it only me or do you also see how wonderful they treat us men, when we do not do what they want. As we are all gathered here today in the “Wonderful Wife Committee” I am glad to have most members attend. Thank you very much. Back to the topic, our wives, as we all know, we must love them, even with or without hysterical pregnancy or incapability to receive our swimmers. They are the ones that make our hairs on our chiny chin chins stand when we never thought that was ever possible, the ones that make our lives a living hell or a living heaven. We at times have to show them who is the boss around here, even if it shakes them up a bit. I hope you see my point of view, thank you so much for your time.
this is the wrong one oops
Hello, my beautiful people, my name is Martha and I will be speaking about a certain topic that doesn’t really put Georgie in a good mood. So if any of you feel uncomfortable, you are more than welcome to exit at this time.
Women are delicate and should be treated with respect. Sometimes men don’t respect women. They let their frustration out on them at times. We, women, deal with it out of love. We feel we have to put up with it because we should be there for our significant other during hard times. We should but sometimes, the case is different.
Women are independent and loving but should not have to depend on men for anything. Men tend to make mistakes and treat their partner badly.
For example, I love Georgie and my daddy always told me that a girl should not rely on a man for everything. A woman should love and care. A woman should be kind to those around her. A woman should know how to defend herself against those who get in the way. A woman should never allow any disrespect from anyone. A woman should not tolerate any misbehavior from anyone, especially grown men.
We are independent. We are one. We are all beautiful. Never forget that ladies. Thank you for your time.
Speech is amazing but you should add more details and be more specific of how women were treated on those times.
Your speech was very well written. You incorporated Martha’s voice while reaching a broad audience. I noticed the repetition of the phrase “A woman” was impressive.
Good morning ladies, I’m Martha and I’m here to tell you a little bit about my relationship. A few months ago my beloved son died. I felt like something was missing in my life. I got to the point where I didn’t have a purpose what so ever. It may sound strange to all of you but since that day me and my husband George have bonded in ways that before I could never imagine. The spark on our marriage came back. I have always wanted George to be like my daddy, but I realized he could never be like him. Georgie is the kind of man that will stay by your side no matter how bad you treat him. I know somewhere inside of him he still loves me. Although he doesn’t show it that often, but my daddy told me man act like that when they really care. I suppose he likes to be treated that way. I thought I could never say this, but I have to thank Georgie for killing our son, and stopping the lies and the mess in our lives.
Greetings, women of all ages, my name is Honey and today I will be speaking to you about a delicate topic in a woman's life. Everyday we get the chance of bringing a miracle into this life that sadly we cannot care for and give it the essentials it needs. Making this the biggest regret in our life's that we which we could take back. A human was forming inside of me, a real life human that I could have given a life to but took it away from them. Filled with guilt and remorse, I had to continue on with my life as if it were okay when in reality it wasn't. The empty hole in my heart had no way of being filled up no matter what. The bringing of another human life is a special gift brought from above that I took for granted and realized when it was way too late. I regret the decision of allowing my son to be murdered more than I ever did. If I learned anything from this experience is that life itself continues wheather you want it to or not. Rethink your decisions before you do them because you can be saving a creatures life that you'd soon care for. Abortion, that's the word that makes us realize who we are. Thank you for your time.
Hello men, my name is George, how are you all? I am here to talk to all of you about our wives. Is it only me or do you also see how wonderful they treat us men, when we do not do what they want. As we are all gathered here today in the “Wonderful Wife Committee” I am glad to have most members attend. Thank you very much. Back to the topic, our wives, as we all know, we must love them, even with or without hysterical pregnancy or incapability to receive our swimmers. They are the ones that make our hairs on our chiny chin chins stand when we never thought that was ever possible, the ones that make our lives a living hell or a living heaven. We at times have to show them who is the boss around here, even if it shakes them up a bit. But, thinking about it, a shake every now and then never really hurt anyone. It made it a lot better than it used to be, better than being treated like garbage. I hope you see my point of view, thank you so much for your time.
Hello, I'm George and I would like to tell you all my marriage with Martha. The years that I have been married to Martha have been a roller coaster. In the beginning of our marriage was wonderful but then it turned sour because of the problem we have of not being able to conceive a child later on in our marriage. What I felt for you in the beginning was something magical and something powerful that took over my emotion but later on it just started to deteriorate. We both tried to fix our marriage so it wouldn't end because of the love we have for each other. The problem of our marriage started when we tried to have a child I didn't work out for us and we went to doctors to fix our problems but after doctors and doctors we were slowly losing our faith that we were going to be able to conceive a child. That’s when we started to go against each other blaming one another rather than being for each other when we need each other the most of the downfall our marriage, but we stayed together we never tried to get a divorce but even though we stayed a married couple we were unhappy. Martha and I would attack each other every day and every day would be battle in our house because of the bickering, but the day that you invited Nick and Honey it helped us figure out the source of our problem and lead us to fix our marriage without all the bickering. I know it won't be easy at first but when we start to see a specialist everything that we had problem with our marriage would soon be gone and we can live happily with each other with no children because of the love we have for each other. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for reading this letter of my marriage with Martha.
Overall, this speech is great. Only thing you should focus on making changes to is the format of a speech, some repetition could be included.
Hello everyone, I'm George. I’m here to speak about history, as you may have expected, since this is a convention based on the subject. However, I’ll be speaking of a slightly different history and we’ll see if you can keep up, I guess we can make it a game: Listen to the Lecturer.
Since the beginning of time, man has been the strongest being, but nowadays when women are involved, we are expected to subject ourselves to their demand. As a married man, I face the squealing demands from Martha all the time. There are a billion requests that are thrown out of her mouth and I can’t always respond as she continues speaking. What does this have to do with history? Well, gentlemen, we are a dominant species and we should be respect as such. Biology can support this. Our genes as men have presented us with strength and size that is superior to our counterparts since man was made. While I love my wife, there are some demands I cannot produce a reply to, much less a child, and this drives her mad. I’m sure some of you here can relate to this. Consider this as you head home to your wives and I hope you all make the right choice.
I like the use of “squealing demands,” punny words always make the writing more entertaining. I also enjoyed the use of making George’s game an alliteration. Great job, keep it up. 😀
Hello dears, it’s Martha here to warn innocent souls, like Honey, about marriage. It starts off wonderful, you fall head over heels in love with a man until you fall on your ass and can’t get back up. You see Georgie was once a handsome man until his hair chalked and he grew the belly of a bear, then it all went downhill, Ha Ha Ha! Now he’s intolerable, not even daddy approves of him, and if your own father doesn’t approve of the man you’re with that says a lot. I am lucky enough to have been born with wits; someone in the relationship needs to have them. Whenever your partner tries to bring you down verbally NEVER stay quiet. Remember to give them what they outta hear. Oh that reminds me of a funny story! Once George pointed a shotgun to my back, but when he pulled the trigger an umbrella popped out! The funny part was that that’s the only way he could hit it from the back, Ha Ha Ha. If you and your husband are going through dry spells don’t be afraid to explore other departments. For example, you might get tired of history you might decide to learn about biology or math. If that doesn’t wake him up, * starts humming Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? * then think about your past and imagine your future. I once had a child, a beautiful baby boy with a broken arm, our child. He recently left us, and George and I are still the same. There are many times where I’ve wanted Georgie to vanish, but without him I am not Martha. I am hopeful that you paid attention to my story; thank you all for listening. * Starts humming Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? *
I absolutely love the beginning to this speech. It gives voice to the character. Th ending is very unique as you incorporated the book meaning into it. Very well done.
I really like how you gave voice in the speech, you were able to sound exactly like Martha. I also enjoy how you were able add examples from the play like Martha humming Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
Hey George, I am happy to be here with you today renewing our vowels. I know the past years have been hell for the both of us and I apologize for that. I hope you know that all came from a place of love for you, but a lack of it for myself. I had always felt so lucky that you had chosen me to spend your life with. I was so happy when you Daddy allowed us to be together. But when he started speaking badly of you, I let his words get to me. Instead of defending you, like a good wife would, I let him say what he needed to because for once he wasn’t disappointed in me. I soon let my insecurities project onto you, I watched myself break you down. Even though my mouth was saying all those all this awful things, my heart disagreed. You were always such a strong willed, intelligent man and I had to strip away any redeeming factor in order for me to think we were in the same level. Maybe if you were a shell of a man, I could finally be worthy of you. I have finally realized that it wasn’t you who needed to change, but me. You were able to not only put yourself back together but help me too. Thank you for never giving up on me baby, I love you.
I really like that you made the characters renew their vows and it sounds really good. Some sentences should be reworded, but the message is understandable. Having Martha hurt George because of her own insecurities was smart and I enjoyed reading about them fixing their marriage. Keep up the good work :)
Here's what we reviewed after school. Now, extend this into a 600-900-word speech that delves into specifics of the content you included here.

Good Afternoon, my name is Honey. Today is an emotional day for me since I have yet to speak on this and it just so happens that today is also the day it happened. Many of you are probably thinking, what is this lady even talking about? Well, there is no other way of going about it, so I should just keep short and sweet. I had an abortion. Now, in your eyes I might be a terrible person who has no heart, but let me tell you. It’s not easy. I love my baby, I want a baby. But I was young and naïve and as stupid as it sounds I was scared of the pain. I look back and realized that I could have done it. I could have raised my baby. This is why I am here. I want any mother who is planning to rid herself of a baby to rethink this decision. Believe me, I know how much it hurts because its still hurting me. I would take back my awful decision in a heartbeat, so I could hear my baby’s heartbeat. Don’t take life for granted, I beg you. One day of pain is nothing compared to the lifetime of guilt that I face. I hope I reached someone today, thank you for listening.
I like the way you sound like Honey, but try to use longer sentences.
Hello, I am Honey, and I am here to talk about alcohol abuse. I have been drinking for a while now, but it wasn’t until a problem until I had to abort my first, and til this day, only child. At first, I thought that the child was something I wanted. That also meant that the love of my live will marry me. So, I went and told him the news, his words were happy, but his eyes were filled with sorrow. At first, I thought it will go away. I thought that he will fall in love with me just like I fell for him, but it didn’t. It stayed, and it festered, and I blamed it on the child. A child that isn’t even born yet. So, I did the biggest mistake of my life, I aborted. But that didn’t fix it, I realize that the problem was the child, it was me. At first, I drank to forget the love I felt for a man that I’m married to. I stared drinking myself in to a hole, a hole that consists of me, myself, and I. Somewhere in that hole I realize that he will never love me. Not only that but I killed the only person that could have loved me, or at least the only person that could have accepted my love. And that’s why I drink, I drink till I puke and once I do, I drink again. I haven’t stopped drinking, I just hope someday I will.
Good Evening everyone, I am Honey. Today I will be sharing with you a personal experience. I will tell you a dark story, one of sadness, mourning, and sorrow. You may ask yourself- “What could have ever happened to this healthy, young lady that fills her with such grievance?”. Well, let me begin by stating the obvious. All women look forward to having a child; We all dream for that precious moment when a beautiful being is growing inside of you. It is a miracle, the biggest blessing one could ever wish for, but not all women get the chance to live this beautiful moment. Several years ago, I married a friend I had known for long. We married because we thought I was pregnant, he believed ---- that I was pregnant. In a moment of blindness, I lied and kept my pregnancy to myself, leading him to believe that it was a simple hysterical pregnancy in the end. I only thought about myself, didn’t think of the future that we could have or the beautiful life inside of me. Regret, remorse, agony... I do not know how to express the feeling inside after making this irreversible mistake. My child, “it” is gone, I call it an IT because it didn’t have a chance to become a he or a she. I didn’t give IT that chance--- I killed It. Yes, there is a word I am restraining myself from using and I am sure you have all figured out what happened to my baby. I without reviewing what it meant to be a mother Killed my baby. In the end a pregnancy is one of the most beautiful things a woman can experience and my irresponsible decision to Abort behind my husbands back and lie caused for great grief and regret. So please I am talking about my great mistake to inform you of the regret that comes along with abortion, yes, it is your right and you are free to do as you like, but think of the life you are saving and the love that child will bring to your life. Don’t make a mistake out of empty minded moments and frightening thoughts. Give it time, happiness comes with time. Thank you for your time.
This speech is very moving towards the audience and speaks about a theme presented in the play.the ending with the repetition of time is very unique.
Hello sweeties, I have been bothering George all day today, trying to get some fire from that old man I call my husband. I want him to be like the old days when our relationship was filled with ignite. We used to have so much fun, Georgie, with our little boy that you killed. You are a monster that I stay with because I love you so deeply, even if you don’t give me the attention I deserve. Not even daddy likes you anymore for not being a real independent man in my life. We all know I run the show with our relationship ever since you’ve devoted your life to being in charge of that ridiculous history department. GOSH! Why can’t you do something more risky, like boxing, huh? Why so boring Georgie? If your husband does give you attitude you tell him that you don’t need him. Listen ladies, if a man doesn’t feed your needs than tell them that they have to start and if anything, push his buttons. Daddy taught me to not let any man treat me like a peasant, to be treated like a princess. As well as being an independent woman that can achieve everything on my own. I Really don’t need you in my life, am serious George. I can just see you doing that annoying unemotional face right now. UGH! I really don’t need you George. you hear me George?! I don’t need you! Now that our little boy is gone, why do I need to stay with a boring man such as yourself? Ladies hear it from the best, you don’t need a man if he can’t give you a child or attention. George, we used to be happy, what happened to us…? I am done with you George. *Cries silently*
Good morning faculty! For those of you who do not know who I am, I am the daughter of the principle of this beautiful college. I have called you all to this meeting today to greet the new teacher of the math department, Nick. Oops, I meant to say the biology department, he is not qualified in any other department. Anyways I hope that Nick and the rest of you are grateful to be employed in Daddy’s college. Daddy truly is an amazing man, he is a great example that many of you here should follow. He has shown much kindness and respect for all the members of his faculty and staff. Maybe one day a lucky teacher will be worthy enough to take after Daddy when he retires. Although there are few that have lost their chance to be Daddy’s successor, ain’t that right George. To think that George literally had the job within his grasp and lost all chances at becoming something greater than a history teacher. Well at least that gives a better chance for the rest of you, especially the younger educators of this college. I urge every single one of you to strive to become better to impress Daddy and I, and do as you are instructed. If so, I am certain that each and every one of you will continue to have a wonderful experience teaching in my Daddy’s college. Alright you are all dismissed, hurry along to your classes your students are waiting for you.
Here is what we reviewed together in class:
Good morning, faculty! For those of you who do not know me, I am Martha Smith, the proud daughter of the president of this prestigious college. I have called you all to this meeting today to greet the new professor of the Math department, Mr. Nick Williams. Oops! I meant to say the Biology department…he is not qualified in any other department. Anyway, I hope that Mr. Williams and the rest of you are grateful to be employed in Daddy’s college. Daddy truly is an amazing man; he is a great example that many of you here should follow. He has shown much kindness and respect for all the members of his faculty and staff. Maybe one day a lucky teacher will be worthy enough to take after Daddy when he retires. Although there are few who have lost their chance to be Daddy’s successor—ain’t that right, George? To think that Georgie literally had the job within his grasp and lost all chances of becoming something greater than a history teacher disgusts me to this day! Well, at least that gives a better chance for the rest of you, especially the younger educators of this college. The younger, handsome ones! I urge every single one of you to strive to become better to impress Daddy and me—and do as you are instructed. If so, I am certain that each and every one of you will continue to have a wonderful experience teaching at my daddy’s college. Alright! You are all dismissed. Hurry along to your classes; your students are waiting!
Greetings to all my lovers, today I stand here to announce my truth. All of the lies I told about my child, so that I could get into bed with half of you, are as I said lies. My son is dead and I’m happy about it. Truth be told he never existed, my beloved husband and I have finally killed him. That unborn child had become our way of distancing each other, he became our method of disgracing one another because of all the hate I had for George since he isn’t fertile. I’m also here to declare that I’m not open to anyone anymore, I’m completely in love with Georgie and we have agreed to establish a fresh start to our marriage. I also know my daddy doesn’t like George very much, but to be completely honest that white mouse with bright red eyes doesn’t like me all that much either, or anyone for that matter and I could careless for him as well. My daddy has also been one of my many ways of dissing George, because my daddy is the owner of the university I would make him feel as less of a men, and he was my way of revealing to Georgie the amount of a failure he is for simply getting his associates in history. As I’m talking in this staff party, I’m regretting all those times when Georgie and I would fool around and diss one another, we both knew we were hurting each other but that didn’t matter. Now is when I realize that I slept with so many men because I loved him very much, I simply wanted his attention. I remember how we would call each other animal names and scare the crap out of each other, just yesterday when we finally killed our child, earlier he had pointed a shotgun at my back and shot it, little did I know it was that crusty old gun umbrella we had saved for our unborn child. All the guilt I have felt and all the love we would hide we can finally enjoy. I love you Georgie!
Hello, it's me George and I'm here to talk about my marriage with Martha. Honestly marriage isn't the picture perfect thing I'd hoped it'd be, it's tough and in my case, sometimes extremely unrewarding and unsatisfying. Martha and I have been having a rocky relationship ever since we discovered we couldn't have children, so we decided to keep each other "sane" we would invent our own child. This caused even more of a strain in our lives. Pretending this was real and constantly fighting because we knew it could never be real. Above the fights, it was just extremely depressing to be a part of. Once we finally decided to put everything in the past, we started to find our love for each other. Even though it took a long while, it was there. At times it didn't seem like there was anything there, but deep down there was. We just needed to work towards it and figure out our difficulties.
definitely write more. Include the audience, let them know you are talkin g to them. Be more detailed on the child and how they invented it. it sounds as if it were in chronological order so try to write the speech as if George were speaking, use his language. Overall, you did pretty good!
I can't bear they immense weight under which you and George have put me through these last years. It's not my fault! It never was, instead of help and support from my own family all I ever received was criticism. You and George have never liked eachother but what you didn't realize is you guys were all I had. I'll never forget everything you did for me after all for a while you were all I had. I just hope you can understand why I had to do this. I was in a place I didn't belong holding on to the false hope one day the swing outside would be used by someone new to this world. Don't be sad or disappointed and most of all please don't throw this one away after all I'm going to the place all Virginia Woolfs end up in. Goodbye sir.
Sincerely your daughter,
Yes. This is a nice start. Here's what we reviewed together this afternoon. Now, extend this with further specificity regarding her resentment toward Daddy's negligence toward Martha (by giving his love and attention to stepmothers), also sending her sincerest apologies to George for not being able to give him a child. (That's just a suggestion...)

Hello ladies and gentlemen,My name is Nick and here is My wife Honey. I am the new professor of the biology department and new to this college. I should start with a little background on myself I was 19 when I got my associates. Me my wife have been together since we were little so we're kinda little sweetheart's. Then there my old man he was kinda a traveling Catholic priest that help people find there religion. He been gone a few years ago and it was a very sad thing. Well I hope you all welcome me in to this facility as one of your own.
Hello men, my name is George, I see there are many new faces to this group we husband created. We are all gathered here today to discuss the way we, men, are treated. We give them everything they want, we give them the expensive clothes, shoes, purses, and sometimes our own precious time. But what do we get in return?! Not one thing. We still love our wives, at least a normal amount. Every person’s experience is different, but I can tell you this, it is better than having a sudden pop of a belly but then it suddenly going “poof,” that must’ve been embarrassing huh Nick? It just went “poof.” Any who, back to wives in general, those little rats are what makes our hairs on our chiny chin chins stand when we never thought it was possible, but can also chose to let us live in a peaceful heaven or a rotting hell. There have been times, for most of you at least, where a lesson needs to be taught, just shaking them a bit usually helps. I’m glad you have listened through my boring story guys. I hope to see your points of views, thank you for your time.
