As an introvert I don't always enjoy public speaking, but I also think that it's important to share knowledge as this is how change can happen - there might be someone in my audience who will have an "aha!" moment thanks to something I say.

And yes, of course there are also people who will roll their eyes when they hear about "feminist legal theory" or "micro-aggressions", but that's okay. That's how I usually know that my research is really on to something. "A ship is safe in harbour, but that is not what ships are for" (said Grace Hopper).
