3 reasons to watch this talk: Soraya Chemaly
- Excellent use of strong, visual images that act as a microcosm for the talk as a whole. The speaker uses one example that includes her mother, and one that includes her daughter; these choices both create accessible points of reference, and extend our thinking to include multiple generations of women.
- The speaker skillfully pinpoints and articulates real world examples that embody her central idea, to the extent that it triggers a laughter response in the audience – from recognition.
- Concise use of language, packed with power, makes the talk memorable and the messaging repeatable after it ends. These include phrases like, ‘I am sick and tired of the women I know being sick and tired.’ And ‘Societies that don’t respect women’s anger don’t respect women.’
