TEDTalks about sanitation, toilet, and innovation. Funny and Inspiring.

Rose George will be hosting a talk at TEDWomen 2013: Invented Here on Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM (GMT). Registration fee is £14.99.

Rose will talk about 'the unspeakability of sanitation, toilets and shit, and how the social prudishness around our most inescapable bodily function causes huge damage to the economy, development and particularly the prospects of women.'
