TEDTalks turned 2 this week and released a top 10 list.
I think the numbers speak for themselves. This entry is my attempt to scream loudly into the void called the internet....yet again. 150 years of literally scraping together rights for females (kind of)worldwide has led to so very few women that have ideas worth sharing.
But at least the top idea worth sharing is from one remarkable woman that I posted right here a few months ago. I have recollected her talk for months now - alone and with friends.
Is gender analysis a worthy pursuit 'in this day and age'?
Until the ultimate basic necessity of life,caregiving, is recognized as an idea worth talking about then I, personally, think so. On the planet at this very moment most women are too busy caregiving to even watch TEDTalks let alone contribute to them.
