3 TED Talks From Inspiring Women

I love  a good TED talk, I don’t often get a lot of spare time but when I do I like to find talks by amazing, inspirational and kick-arse women.

For those of you who are wondering what TED talks are, TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks, most of the videos are around 20 minutes or less. Ted talks are motivational ways to improve your life, while learning a variety of new “life tricks” and many self improvement techniques.

The majority of talks I have watched are really bloody good, they aim to inspire you, make you ask questions and really think deeply about certain topics. I have recently watched a few fantastic ones and wanted to share them with you today, they reflect what I talk about in my “Sisterhood Series” and I have no doubt that they will inspire you to go forth and kick some arse!

It’s time to treat yourself to a TED, go pour yourself a cuppa, make yourself comfy and press play… 

Leymah Gbowee: Unlock the intelligence, passion, greatness of girls

Sheryl Sandberg: Why we have too few women leaders

Eve Ensler: Suddenly, my body

For even more inspiration, you should check out some of my recent Sister Series posts:
