Elisabeth Burgos, sociologist and anthropologist of Venezuelan origin, in her long story: "My name is Rigoberta Menchù ”, which deals with the life situation of women in Guatemala, among other things, quotes: "When we discuss the issue of women, it is necessary that man is present and he too makes his contribution. What is the use of educating the woman, if the man is not present, does not contribute to the apprenticeship and does he not learn himself? "
TEDx Tirana Women is a one-day event, which is organized in parallel to its namesake in San Francisco, USA and other events organized in 230 countries of the world, simultaneously on the same day.
More precisely, in San Francisco the 4, 5 and 6 December is organized for three consecutive days, of which the last date, that of 6 December, coincides with the day of the event in Tirana.
In the United States, this women's event was organized for the first time in the 2010.
In Albania, the first meeting of the TEDx conference, with male participation, was organized in April 2013.
This time in Tirana, TEDx Tirana Women will take place on December 6 2013 at Chateau Linza.
As the conference organizers report, as regards women's participation and involvement, for Albanian women in this event in Tirana, success was not so easy. However, the chosen women who will be the speakers for the event are intelligent, strong women with a predisposition to share their experiences with the public.
It is a further opportunity to get on the podium - and not simply to offer a scenic appearance and even less to do only as a narrator, as they will communicate directly with the public and interact with it through questions and answers - of Albanian women, who in recent times have distinguished themselves for their specific characteristics, each in their own sphere, as bearers of positivity, innovation, creativity, for the spirit of the initiative and of undertaking in any sector in the Albanian company.
The speakers will be 6 female figures, important and honored in the Albanian society, selected following a strict criterion, which took into account the suggestions from the public, through a forum set up a few days before the event on the official website of TEDx Tirana and on the official facebook page, but also by in-depth research carried out by the event organizers.
The public will be composed of well-known figures of the Albanian society - not necessarily only women, but also of men - a part of this audience has been made possible through the invitations to the other party, through the purchase of tickets that these days have been for sale in the capital.
Since the elaboration of the event format has as its objective the treatment of the female figure under the aspect of the cultivation of its potential through the mind, the body and the soul - in which the last two elements, it is supposed that yoga has an unquestionably positive influence - before the start of the activity, the participants will be invited to participate in a yoga session, to arrive at the event relaxed, free of tension and concentrated on what the event will deal with the female figure and the its role in Albanian society.
Moderator of the event will be Besa Shahini, a well-known Kosova analyst, who distinguishes herself - in addition to her excellent intellectual preparation - as a woman with remarkable communication skills and who will guarantee a perfect success between the conciliation of the speakers' discussions and the direct conversation or exchange of views with the public.
The six female speaking figures, chosen to speak from the podium and to exhibit their own professional experiences or, purely personal - as in the case of some of them, despite a figure already publicly known - to present curiosities, which in other previous information spaces, do not have deemed it appropriate to make public or confess, are:
Milena Harito, which will intervene not as a politician, but as a realized woman, who reaches Albania from abroad, to offer her contribution and to make available to the Albanian society, its intellectual potential, which perhaps, without the matching to the respective dose of humility, she would not be able to get the right effect.
Elhaida Dani, the young Albanian singer who triumphed in the talent show "The Voice of Italy 2013" and which stands out among other things, also for her loyal, courteous and affable communication with the public - both the Albanian, Italian and international - which will tell his artistic path. A live interpretation by the singer will also follow.
Suela Lala, a well-known activist in Albanian society, in defense of the rights of people with limited abilities, will share her experience with the public.
Ilva Tare, a well-known journalist of the Albanian screen, with her professional and personal confessions, never told before and surprising.
Emanuela Pepkola Zaimi, founder of the Down Syndrome Albania Foundation, that through the confession of her own personal experience, will make known to the public opinion, her tenacity and her efforts - so far very successful - inherent in the establishment and deepening of the activity of this foundation, whose purpose is, among other things, the improvement of living conditions and integration in Albanian society, of children and people with Down syndrome.
Anila Sulstarova, a well-known Albanian psychologist, who will focus her speech on reconciling the role of career woman with that of mother of a family.
Another female figure participating in the event will be Drenusha Xharra, a well-known Kosova fashion designer, who, through the conciliation of her short speech and a show of Kosovan models, bearers of her creations, will offer a spectacular image to the event and will be able to present her creative skills.
The realization of the event was entrusted to the commitment of six organizers and to a considerable number of volunteers, entrusted with the care of every minimum detail and the perfect success of the evening.
There is no possibility of a direct television transmission, also due to the simple fact that there will be a parallel plot with the transmission from the United States, but of course, after only a few days, on the official global website of the TEDx and also on the official facebook page, the appropriate modalities will be communicated on the vision of the program. Undoubtedly, the event will also be uploaded to the respective you tube channel.
