TEDxCoventGardenWomen was held on December 7th 2013 and brought together thinkers and doers (men and women) who inspired and motivated our audience by igniting a debate on women related issues.
The Global TEDWomen theme ‘Invented here’ will celebrate women’s innovation in all its forms across many disciplines. While there are thousands of women innovators, there are millions who are still struggling to break out of the stereotypes that define them and limit their potential.
Since the 1960s, the women's liberation movement has lobbied for the rights of women and fought hard to challenge and redefine traditional stereotypical gender roles. Unfortunately, labels are still used to define and identify women’s positions in society, with complete disregard to these women’s core being.
The theme for TEDxCGW, Un-Labelled, celebrates the “mother of all innovation”, an innovation that will break down societal and cultural barriers preventing women from realising their full potential.
At our event in December, we want to challenge socially, culturally and politically constructed labels and highlight the dangers of ‘gendering’ that affects the very existence of all human beings - men and women. We also want to show how an ‘Un-Labelled’ woman can re-invent herself.
