X and Y, the primary sex chromosomes known, brought two forms of the most influential species on Earth into being: woman and man. Along with the evolution of civilization, women have always been contributing and making positive impacts.

Now more than ever, women do not have to constantly break stereotypes and prove themselves to the world. Instead, they are showcasing themselves beyond conventional gender labels. When we as a society started to realize that power does not equal to physical strength, and reproducing is a choice not a must, women would be able to break free from their biological endowment. Gentle and tough, women are creating a narrative about resilience and power where spaces are not gendered any longer.

TEDxXi'anWomen city conference is the first event that focuses on female-centered topics curated by TEDxXi'an,and it is one of the few citywide women conferences in China. We will invite speakers on various disciplines – both men and women, from art to design, education to psychology, fashion to gender studies or sexology – to share their ideas on how women think and behave, communicate and collaborate, learn and lead. We will try to observe and explain our world from the viewpoints of women, hoping to inspire more insights and as a result think and grow together with you.
