A leading advocate for spotlighting how the mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America, Caroline Heldman offers straight talk and an often-startling look at the objectification of women in our society. She illustrates how it has escalated, how we have become inured to its damaging effects and what we can do individually and collectively to demolish the paradigms that keep us from a better world.
Chair of the politics department of Occidential College in Los Angeles, Dr. Heldman appeared in the acclaimed documentary, Miss Representation and is co-editor of "Madame President: Are We Ready for a Woman in the White House?" She is a frequent commentator on radio and television and a regular contributor to Ms. Magazine.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
In the new today Jian Ghomeshi got away with it!
In my opinion "a crime against all women was committed" when they let him go.
Oh Canada, when will you learn. Very sad day for all women, children especially...we are living in the dark ages.
Where is Social Justice? Where are Human Right?
Where is RESPECT, LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, EMPATHY?
What does this say to society on the whole...it tells men they can get away with it!
Please have a talk with you children, your family, your loved ones, we must make change because the courts, law and government will not have our backs.
