The Sexy Lie: Caroline Heldman at TEDxYouth@SanDiego (12:49)
A leading advocate for spotlighting how the mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America, Caroline Heldman offers straight talk and an often-startling look at the objectification of women in our society. She illustrates how it has escalated, how we have become inured to its damaging effects and what we can do individually and collectively to demolish the paradigms that keep us from a better world.

"It's like being raised in a red room, pulled out of that red room, then asked to describe the color red." I have echoed this idea elsewhere by asking if a goldfish knows it's living in a fish bowl. Do we know what's going on? Do we understand our society or do we blindly accept it as the status quo? Do we truly understand our behavior, our morality, and our ethics or do we blindly emulate what others do with no assessment as to validity of our actions? Is the world just the way the world is? Can we envisage a different one and if so, can we figure out how to make it happen? "What better world will you build?"
