I love spending time watching TED talks online. The organization is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and to commemorate this, Anna Verghese, one of its directors, has selected 3 talks from more than 1,700 that every woman should watch. Do not waste your time; press play now! 

P.S. All of the TED videos on Youtube can be watched with subtitles.
