Women in business: entirely unremarkable | Kirsten Hall | TED Institute
Kirsten Hall has a provocative question: is it time to stop celebrating women in business, just for being women in business? Maybe, she suggests, we can wind down the idea of corporate women’s groups - and position women in business as the new normal. TED@StateStreet was a TED-curated event celebrating speakers from across the State Street community. Produced in partnership with State Street, the event showcased the power of collaboration in the never-ending challenge to build a better world.

HOW I ESCAPED CHILD MARRIAGE TO BECOME A WOMEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVIST | Mercy Akuot | TEDxKakumaCamp
As a teenager, Mercy Akuot’s Dad informed her that her schooling days were over, and she was to immediately get married to a man she knew as her uncle. She was told she had no choice, that this was the custom and tradition. But for Mercy this tradition was wrong, and she fought back. She says she doesn’t blame her parents, but negative cultural practices that oppress women. Her story of survival drives her passion to support women and girls to stand up for themselves in Kakuma Camp, in South Sudan and around the world. (Recorded at TEDxKakumaCamp on June 9, 2018) When she was only 15, South Sudanese refugee Mercy Akuot was married off against her will, to an elderly man. She escaped the forced union and now advocates for women’s rights and supervises a women and girls empowerment program in the camp.
