Bobbi Ausubel
Speaker & Workshop Leader


We wanted an event that would be a big culmination to International Women's Week at Stanford University. We loved it! Bobbi, what a pleasure it was working with you. You are genuinely inspiring.

Bobbi was able to use her skills … to create a safe and enthusiastic environment. The stories of the shunned women's survival and boldness in the face of great odds flowed out. In addition, women and adolescent girls, who had never acted before, were able to use drama impressively to publicly enact their unmet needs as well as their personal achievements.

What a wonderful event. Bobbi, you couldn't have been more inspirational, warm, loving, and inclusive. You helped create an environment that was safe for students.

[S]he came to work with my [human rights] organization, Kolkata Sanved in Kolkata. She spent over one month and worked with our survivors (of trafficking and violence) and trainers on Drama Therapy. Bobbi’s unique technique used personal stories, using the actors' child characters as a way to find their spontaneous self. This connection helped to freeing body, voice and emotions.

Bobbi is extremely 'sharp.' She was able to transform even the shy, anxious students. It was amazing. The students raved about her!

We had a very good turnout of women from our campus who truly engaged in the program and Bobbi's message. Thanks again for an awesome experience!"

Bobbi Ausubel did a spectacular job engaging both teen students and adult women to talk about themselves in a way that is not usually "socially acceptable" in Kenya, Africa. The students and their parents loved participating.

Bobbi Ausubel is a dynamic, provocative workshop leader. [She] challenges the notion of the weak, innocent female.
