TED Talks

When Gretchen Carlson spoke out about her experience of workplace harassment, it inspired women everywhere to share their own stories, be fierce, and take their power back. “We will no longer be underestimated, intimidated or set back," Gretchen says. "We will stand up and speak up and have our voices heard. We will be the women we were meant to be." To learn what we can do to take steps toward ending this problem, watch @therealgretchencarlson's #TEDTalk at go.ted.com/befierce

@negitivzer0 ikr? no problem! Just a reflexion. The same why adult men in my city are cat callers to very young girls like 12,13 years old rather than to an adult attractive sexy confident woman...

Absolutely true. All women (and men) should know the significance of the emotional intimidation when your narcissistic boss starts this. BEWARE.

And the POWER is coming from over-the-hill, out-of-shape hairy fat guys (i.e. Weinstein, Louis CK) or in Kevin Spacey's case...one kinda weird closeted homosexual that you always had your reservations about but kept silent because he won those Academy Awards, and...well, he was actually a good Keyser Söze, who he was great in as a character but a crappy human being in real life. Not saying relatively attractive, fit men can't be douchebags too. I'm just alluding to the fact that the latest schmucks haven't exactly been your generic chick magnets. Maybe that's why the sexual abuse (due to their self-image and ego-driven psychology)? (((sighs)))

It's about both


2017.11.23. 06:55
Then why its not called power harassment.


2017.11.23. 07:01
@boundbunni Stop saying legalized sex worker. You're a whore, let's just be blunt about it.


2017.11.23. 07:05
@bysheldonb i am a legal sex worker. Why? Because i pay my taxes. I run my business legally, safely, and professionally. So no- I'm not a whore. I'm proud to be a legal sex worker. There's a big different between legal sex worker in Nevada and the stereotype you're trying to apply to me.


2017.11.23. 07:09
@boundbunni You're selling your body to strangers. I don't care how you try and mark it up, you're a whore.

Wildfires have gotten worse in the past 100 years, but why? Well, first, land that was once dry is now filled with greenery. And with the trees growing closer together than ever before, it’s easy for diseases to spread and weaken large sections of the forests. Couple that with the fact that summers are getting hotter, drier, and windier than ever. And finally, we’re building houses on top of everything! These factors (plus a few others) are a recipe for a fire disaster much like what we’ve seen across California this year. So what do we do? “We need to put the right kind of fire back into the system again,” says forest ecologist Paul Hessburg. “It's how we can resize the severity of many of our future fires. And the silver lining is that we have tools and we have know-how to do this.” To learn how we can restore the natural balance of the landscape and prevent these disasters from occurring, watch Paul’s #TEDTalk at go.ted.com/wildfires

Have you heard of Mae Jemison, YouYou Tu, Katherine Johnson, Maryam Mirzakhani, or Rita Levi-Montalcini? All five are women in STEM who have made incredible contributions to science and mathematics, yet their names rarely appear in history books. Artist and neuroscientist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya (@alonglastname) created an illustration project called Beyond Curie to showcase those five women and more, hoping to give them all the recognition they deserve. To learn more about the transformative contributions they made in their fields, visit go.ted.com/plan. You can also see more of Amanda’s work at go.ted.com/beyondcurie. @DoSomething launched a campaign called #MissingInHistory to fight misrepresentation and erasure in textbooks.

These children are reading inside of a mud cave. It’s part of a school in Bangladesh that is made entirely out of dirt and bamboo. Architect Anna Heringer designed it for her thesis project 13 years ago to show that you can create cozy and beautiful structures using only natural materials. “There are a lot of resources given by nature for free -- all we need is our sensitivity to see them and our creativity to use them," she says.

This is a self-portrait of @TEDFellow and artist Uldus Bakhtiozina. In it, she embodies the Triskele, a Celtic symbol representing a triple spiral with various meanings. Uldus’s work is often inspired by classic fairy tales, and her self portraits are no different. She creates them to explore alternative identities and comment on the cliches of modern womanhood. “I love to become a different person in front of the camera,” she says. “My self-portraits are a mirror which shows me another version of myself, existing somewhere else, having another life.” To learn more about @uldusss’s work and the art of self-portraiture, visit go.ted.com/selfportrait

Net neutrality is currently the status quo of the internet. It allows everyone to have open access to the web without an internet service provider speeding up, slowing down, or blocking the websites and applications you want to visit. Tomorrow, all of that might change for the United States. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is voting on whether the US can keep net neutrality. And the threat is real. Without net neutrality, internet service providers have the power to control what you can and cannot access online (and how much you have to pay for it) — and there’s no telling how far they’ll go. “You never notice your rights until you lose them,” says TED Technology Curator Alex Moura. “People need to be really willing to stand for something. It’s not about freedom of speech — it’s about who controls information.” We know this sounds pretty bleak, but there’s still some hope! In 2015, India won the battle for net neutrality. To learn how they fought for their right to the internet and how the United States can do the same, visit go.ted.com/netneutrality. #netneutrality

In October, Burundi, a country in East Africa, banned all women from playing the country’s renowned royal drums. The decree was an effort to regulate and preserve traditional drumming in Burundi, which has been symbolic of the royal kingdom and traditionally done by men. Kenyan drummer and @TEDFellow Kasiva Mutua was outraged. “Culture doesn’t make the people. It’s the people who make the culture, and live with it,” she says. “Culture evolves, culture keeps changing. And if women want to play drums, let them play.” To learn more about @kasivamutua’s experience fighting gender barriers and cultural stereotypes as a female percussionist in Africa, visit go.ted.com/drummingrights Illustration by @cosmicsomething
