10 Powerful TED Talks for (and by!) Badass Women

Our August Badass Women’s Book Club book, We Should All Be Feminists, is adapted from the author’s TED Talk by the same name.  Her message is inspiring - and her delivery quite humorous at times! Watching it got me thinking about other powerful TED talks by badass women.  Here are 10 more worth checking out! And note - some of the authors also have books so I’ve included those as well.
