Recently on the interwebs, I stumbled upon a wonderful video of a Ted Talk Tavi Gevinson gave. For such a young woman, (when she gave the Ted Talk she was 15–now she’s 16) she is years beyond her actual age in wisdom. While watching her Talk, I was fascinated by the concepts and ideas she brought up–like the objectification of women and modern feminism. Lately these topics have dominated conversation, newspaper blogs, and also Zooey Deschanel’s Hello Giggles. It was so refreshing watching her discuss these topics and giving her input. I love knowing there are many more young women out there like her who are aware of what all occurs around them and have wonderfully valid opinions about such topics.
Here’s a link to the video: http://www.ted.com/talks/tavi_gevinson_a_teen_just_trying_to_figure_it_out.html
