A TED/TEDx Playlist: 27 songs to celebrate women innovators

TEDWomen is today, so we’re rocking out to this Spotify playlist, put together by a resident team of music dorks (one of them writing to you right now) with songs about women who’ve innovated, made a difference, taken a stand, and changed history in the process.

Our mixtape of tunes includes: a Swedish dance-pop tribute to Marie Curie’s research on radioactivity, Jane Birkin’s ode to the work and ideals of Burmese political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi, an emotional love song for Georgia O’Keefe, and a tongue-in-cheek punk rock commentary on Margaret Thatcher.

Check it out below or on Spotify:

(Above — clockwise — Benazir Bhutto, Ada Lovelace, Georgia O’Keefe, Virginia Woolf, Sojourner Truth, Nelly Bly)
