What is TEDx Women?
TEDxWomen is a TEDx event organized by the Paley Center for Media that focuses on women and women’s issues. TEDxWomen type events are TEDx events hosted around the live webcast of TEDxWomen, and also feature local speakers. Our event is called TEDxCentennialParkWomen and is one of many TEDx events happening around the globe between November 30th and December 1st that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDxWomen.
The below is an example of a TEDxWomen talk by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, producer of film Miss Representation, focusing on the gender roles projected by the media and how they keep girls and young women from reaching their potential.
