"Pioneering activist and cultural theorist Jean Kilbourne has been studying the image of women in advertising for over 40 years. In this rapid-fire, passionate, and highly entertaining talk, she discusses the experiences that inspired her to create this new field and vividly illustrates how these images affect us all. You'll never look at an ad in the same way again."

"If you give money to a nonprofit that works on homelessness, you probably think of it as charity. But one LA-area organization wants to reframe how we see the issue. The Weingart Center, which helps get homeless people back into regular jobs and housing, argues that we should be thinking of spending on homelessness as an investment—not a donation.

"Masih Alinejad is an Iranian journalist and advocate for religious freedom and women's rights. She is the moderator of My Stealthy Freedom, a Facebook group that has over 800,000 followers. There, she and other Iranian women post photos of themselves removing their headscarves in public — a quiet but brave protest against the Iranian laws that govern not just their clothing, but the way they practice their religion."

"If a culture believes it is okay to burn women and disfigure them because they don’t want to marry someone they don’t love, then that culture is fucked."
