    Nope. But maybe that's because there's been younger people in our house for many years, or because I've been a student, and thus around younger people for the past five years. Women's voices do seem to be getting deeper, though. Maybe it's because they smoke more.

    Women's voices in general, or those that you know personally?
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Younger women's voices in general. More specifically, those of young female university students. There have always been women with 'husky' voices, but these days they form the majority of those I hear.

    I too find that increasing numbers of women have deeper voices, and their hands have been getting bigger too. Or maybe it's just the clubs I frequent
