Happy Women’s History Month! We can celebrate strong women all year long, but I’ll never eschew a chance to really put a spotlight on strong women of the past, present, and future. TED Talks, I’ve found, are a great way to learn a lot in a little bit of time, and there are SO many out there by so many unique speakers, so why not watch a few this Women’s History Month to learn about women’s history, the present situation many women face, and how we can continue to be historically great women going forward.

How To Build Your Confidence–And Spark It In Others

Something I’ve come to realize from all the writing I’ve done about strong women in history, the suffrage movement, and more, is that we need to keep encouraging women to be confident in themselves and their beliefs and stand up and speak out. This is a great Ted Talk for that.
