Talking While Female

Ever been told you have a child-like voice? An innocent voice? An annoying voice? Unfortunately for most women, our high-pitched voices are considered inferior in the eyes of society. This animation, created for a NPR report, interviews several women who talk about their experiences with how they’re treated because of their voice. Using poll numbers and research articles to prove its point, the video explains how society’s preference for deeper voices have led to unfortunate side effects for women–like vocal fry, another vocal tick women have that’s considered “annoying.”

The video is made by Kellie Anderson, who specializes in making cool animations out of paper. If you’re curious about her production process, here’s a blog post that explains how the video was made.
