Check this out: Ted Talk “Our century’s greatest injustice”

I really enjoy Ted Talks. If you aren’t familiar with Ted, you had better get over to Ted.com right now to check out what you are missing! TED stands for Technology, Education and Design, but it has grown into a huge movement covering a wide variety of topics. Basically, experts from all fields (and inspiring every-day folks too) speak at Ted events organised all over the world. The talks are recorded live and later broadcast on the Ted.com website for anyone to view.

This one in particular given by Sheryl WuDunn in July 2010 really caught my eye. Sheryl is an American business executive and writer (along with her husband Nicholas Kristof, who writes for the NY Times). She has traveled all over and shares some really great stories in this talk of strong women and how they have become a part of the solution of breaking the cycle of poverty.
