For most of history, Anonymous was a woman
TEDxKL Women - The Space Between
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.
