"Permission Granted?!"

© 2015 Katy Hansell

Unlike all my other talks listed above that are for men and women, this talk is intended for women only. This talk is ideal for women's networking or professional groups, or women's empowerment events. 

I am personally fascinated by the theme of permission that seems to pervade our culture and how women seem to struggle to give themselves permission to do things that men do automatically and take for granted. I believe that women view permission in a disempowered way and it takes a psychic toll on us and we unconsciously are reinforcing the media stereotypes about it and passing it on to the next generation of girls and young women. 

I challenge this notion by disrupting our view of permission and outline a strategy wherein women direct themselves to their highest successes.
