Why gender equality is good for everyone

I recently came across this fascinating TED talk. For those who are not familiar with this organization, TED  (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a non-profit dedicated to spreading ideas in 18 minutes or less. It’s well worth the time investment.

In this TED talk, Michael Kimmel shares why gender equality is not just good for women. He looks at the impact of gender equality on business, on family life and on men. It’s from a secular perspective, so doesn’t mention the church, but it is definitely both informative and entertaining.

    Hi Felicity,
    This is a great talk… Jimmy Carter also has one in TED that discusses it but also brings the interpretation of the Bible and other sacred literature as some of the primary reasons for discrimination of women…..
    God bless you!

      I recently read some of Jimmy Carter’s book on this topic. (I need to read the whole thing.) Apparently, it’s the reason he left his denomination.
