Ted Talks: Drawing upon humor for change

Great video from TedWomen featuring New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly who uses her cartoons to talk about ways women can use humor to break gender norms.



For more on funny women shaking things up, I highly recommend watching the documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" (it's on Netflix instant streaming). Joan is a bundle of contradictions when it comes to feminism but its hard to deny what she has done for women in comedy and entertainment, and if you watch E!'s Fashion Police you see she is still funny as hell.
