Themes Women Reshaping the World

Women Reshaping the World

These TEDTalks share one thing in common: big, bold ideas about women's roles in the world. Data-driven insights that upend traditional stereotypes ... personal stories with universal resonance ... humor with bite ... and amazing talks from women who've pioneered fields once closed to them.

While there is much to debate around women's roles and ideas in the 21st century, these talks underscore one inarguable point: Helping women around the world get equal access to education, healthcare and cash is the way to move our planet forward.
