TEDxPentagon - MSgt Julia Watson, USMC - Why Women Matter in War

MSgt Julia Watson, a Female Engagement Team Marine discusses how being a "third gender" in Afghanistan gives female Marines access to the fiercely protected Afghan women. She explores the power of the Afghan women in the home, and the delicate balance between getting to know women in Afghanistan only to withdraw in the near future, and how we must be careful not create a new generation of Taliban fueled by the scorn of dissatisfied women that we tried to help, but couldn't. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
