Enjoy this TED Women talk by Courtney Martin

I am delighted to share this TED Women talk by Courtney Martin, a remarkable young woman leader who attended our Women of Spirit and Faith Retreat in November.

The TED folks introduce Courtney with this language: TED Talks Blogger Courtney Martin examines the perennially loaded word "feminism." In a personal and heartfelt talk, she describes the three paradoxes that define her generation's quest to define the term for themselves.

I would use this language: I am filled with gratitude for Courtney’s keen intelligence, her huge open heart and her grounded wisdom. Her talk is a lived experience of what happens when you weave together feminism with spiritual leadership. She brought me to tears and flooded me with optimism about the future of this planet.

Enjoy!
