The Power and Promise of Social Justice Activism | Zohra Moosa | TEDxAmsterdam

There have been many changes in our society; women’s right to vote, the abolition of slavery the legislation of same-sex marriage are a few examples in much of the world. But these changes take lifetimes to happen. Zohra Moosa explains how all of us can become an activist; that people working together really can change the world. Zohra Moosa is a feminist activist and currently the Executive Director of Mama Cash, the first international women’s fund in the world. Based in Amsterdam and operating globally, the smallish but bold fund supports social justice and human rights groups, organizations, networks and movements led by women, girls, and trans and intersex people by providing financial grants and other non-financial resources. The fund was started 35 years ago as a solidarity fund by a group of women in Amsterdam, and continues today to collect resources from where it can to channel back to courageous feminist activists all around the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
