5 Ted Talks that Every Woman should Listen to.

1. Your body language may shape who you are - Amy Cuddy

"Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.

2. How apologies kill our confidence - Maja Jovanovic

"Apologies are confidence killers. So, why are women apologizing all the time? Apologies matter, and with every unnecessary apology we give, we chip away at our confidence. I want to bring attention to how often women apologize, and for what reason they're apologizing. Incessant apologies for mundane issues change how people perceive us.​"

3. The magic of not giving a F*ck - Sarah Knight

Sarah Knight, outlines her "NotSorry Method" to stop spending time you don't have with people you don't like doing things you don't want to do in her humorous talk.​

4. Teach girls bravery, not perfection - Reshma Saujani

"We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. "I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection."​

5. My year of saying yes to everything - Shonda Rhimes

"What do you do, when the thing you do and the work you do starts to taste like dust?" You say Yes to play and return to love and joy. "Work doesn't work without play."
