An Approach to Empowering Young Women | Christine Monska | TEDxEasthamptonWomen

Empowered women across generations tell us about the benefits of empowering Young Women to participate in local government and stand up for the causes they believe in. Christine has been academically researching and analyzing the gaps in women’s participation and representation in politics. She focuses on security sector reform to address domestic violence and human trafficking while aiding in psychosocial support for victims of sexual violence. Currently, she is a Program Officer at the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts as well as a Continuing Education Advisor at Bard Microcollege in Holyoke. Her experience working at the U.S. Department of Justice under the Obama Administration and the Massachusetts State Legislature has paved the way for her to empower women and girls to participate in their government to become more civically engaged leaders in their community. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
