"Influential videos from expert speakers." That's what TED talks are, whether they stem from the organisation's main TED conference, from its satellite TEDx events that take place worldwide to increase the reach even further of those "ideas worth spreading", or, in this case, from the TEDWomen conference that focuses on women and girls and their power to be creators and changemakers.
Here, we have selected the most popular talks from TEDxTinHauWomen, the women-dedicated TEDx event in Hong Kong hosted around the live webcast of TEDWomen and featuring local speakers, which will return on December 1, 2022, as well as the most viewed talks from TEDWomen, including one by cognitive scientist Lera Borodistky's talk on language and thought that has garnered more than 18 million views. The following collection of talks spans a broad range of topics and inspires a wealth of emotions and can't help but be in keeping with the mission of TED to share the stories and ideas worth spreading far and wide.
