For most of history, Anonymous was a woman

TEDxKL Women - The Space Between

In our society today, there exist gaps between us Malaysians, due to our difference in cultural backgrounds, generations, genders or any number of things that divide us. While these gaps may be case for miscommunication and conflict, they equally offer us different perspectives of reality, thus adding to the exiting diversity of life.

Women, attuned to seeing how inter-relationships work, are adept at accepting other points of view. They are more likely to see the grey between seemingly black-and-white issues and find areas where more understanding may be necessary.

At this year’s TEDxKLWomen, we will hear from our distinguished speakers as they explore those gaps in society vis-à-vis the theme, The Space Between, and what can be or is being done to address them. While the women speakers will approach their subjects through the prism of being a woman in Malaysia today, the men will offer counterbalance views from their perspective as the opposite sex.
