The Power of Words - A Storyteller's View

Elif maria talk

Even though, women read more and are great storytellers, why is it that most well known writers are male? Elif Shakaf says that the reason is about our perception. Women first don't think they have something interesting to say that would make a change. Additional to that, we often perceive creativity as a gift for artists and we expect people in business rather to be rational than creative. What do stories and words do? It connects, different than politics, all readers are connected with the words and the perceptions we have while reading a novel. Even though as a reader or author you read on your own, but we are all connected in this perceived loneliness. This helps us to see as part of someone else and overcome politics.
