Nice Girls Don't Yell: You Talk Too Much is an exploration into how women's voices are not valued and not heard. The collaged text includes my childhood "theme song" often sung to me by my father "You Talk Too Much" which inspired the name of this second installation of Rules for Girls. While researching how women are dismissed I read the prospectuses for three studies and pulled relevant quotes from them juxtaposing them to show how women's voices have been dismissed in history, in education, and in politics.
