TEDxWomen: The conversation continues … and you can join

Posted by: TED Guest Author

Cross-posted from the TEDx Tumblr: Last year’s TEDWomen conference has inspired an ambitious TEDx event: TEDxWomen, a one-day bi-coastal event held in NY and LA on December 1, independently organized and hosted by Pat Mitchell and The Paley Center for Media.

Speakers including Barbara Walters, singer-songwriter Morley, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem and documentarion Jennifer Siebel Newsom will convene under the theme “The Conversation Continues.”

You can bring this global conversation local by hosting a TEDx viewing event around TEDxWomen in your own community.

Last year, 117 TEDx events in 46 countries — including the United States, Colombia, Singapore, South Africa and Brazil — were planned around the TEDWomen webcast. Speakers at these local events included a pair of Dutch opera singers, an Olympic silver medalist and a Disney-trained animator from the UAE.

This year, be a part of this ongoing conversation around the future of women and girls — host a TEDx event around TEDxWomen. Learn more >>

    I was wondering why there even needs to be a TEDxWomen event, until I had a bit of a scan of the front page in which 4 out of 20 newest releases are by women, then I looked at the most viewed talks, 5 out of 20 are by women. Then I looked at the 20 talks that got the most comments this week, 2 of which are by women.
    Now I know why there needs to be a TEDxWomen event. Improve your game, TED, so that we don’t need to have these ‘corrective’ events.
