The American Corner Cape Town will be screening TED talks on Thursday, 7 March 2019 to commemorate Human Rights and International Women’s day. These events are of incredible importance as they encourage respect, equality and tolerance for all.
The talks screened in this session will particularly highlight the significance of women in the quest for global human rights. We celebrate Women and pay homage to the role they have played to bring forth human rights not only locally but internationally.
Cape Town’s own, Lauren Jacobs takes a look at women's place in history and the importance of preserving it. We then watch a talk by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on why he believes the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights issue.
Yvonne Orji’s talk titled, ‘The wait is sexy’, takes a humorous look at women’s rights in relationships. Followed by Cecile Richard who talks about the political progress women have made and what’s next.
