The Brave Us | 2018

After a challenging and exciting year for feminism, it has become clear that when we are united, we are stonger and our voices reach way further. The 8M, the #MeToo, the #IBelieveYou (and so many others) demonstrated that we are not alone and that, today more than ever, change is about leaning in and being brave together.

At TEDxBarcelonaWomen2018 edition, we celebrated what makes us unique and powerful together. The passion, the courage, the talent. That unstoppable “us” who dares to challenge ideas and change the status quo. That “us” that makes everything worthwhile and pushes us to go forward, no matter what.

It was a party for everyones! Curious and brave men and women committed to gender equality. Peeps ready to get inspired and work together to change everything!
