Event: TEDWomen 2010
Speaker: Liza Donnelly
Bio: New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly shares a portfolio of her wise and funny cartoons about modern life — and talks about how humor can empower women to change the rules.
The COVID-19 pandemic is getting more and more chaotic. What can we do with the extra time we are getting?
Well, when the speaker had chaos in her life, she discovered Cartooning.
A snippet from the fun talk:
“Now I started drawing in the middle of a lot of chaos. I grew up not far from here in Washington D.C. during the Civil Rights movement, the assassinations, the Watergate hearings and then the feminist movement, and I think I was drawing, trying to figure out what was going on. And then also my family was in chaos, and I drew to try to bring my family together — (Laughter) — try to bring my family together with laughter. It didn’t work. My parents got divorced, and my sister was arrested. But I found my place. I found that I didn’t have to wear high heels, I didn’t have to wear pink, and I could feel like I fit in.”
Art and Laughter! What is powerful combo! Enjoy.
“And I think, I truly believe, that we can change this thing one laugh at a time.”
