TEDxBradfordWomen: The Space Between

Saturday 1 December 2012, 9:30am to 5:15pm

TEDxBradfordWomen: The Space Between coincides with TEDxWomen 2012, turning the spotlight on the ideas of women and girls who challenge and redefine the traditional rules and roles ascribed to women and men, girls and boys.

"Just occasionally there is a seismic shift in the way women are perceived and represented in the world. This year we experienced Julia Gillard standing up for women in Australian politics and as a result Macquarie Dictionary redefined what it is to be a misogynist! But most of the time it is small everyday happenings that shift perceptions and redefine roles in all our lives."

To celebrate those working to challenge our ideas and rebuff the stereotypes, a group of engaging, fun and inspiring speakers have been brought together to talk about issues ranging from mental health and gaming, to publishing and to feminism in the Middle East.
