Inspired by the theme of TEDWomen 2013, “Invented Here,” we’ve created a killer playlist with songs about women who’ve innovated, made a difference, taken a stand and changed history in the process.

Our mixtape of tunes include: 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 dedicated to Georgia O’Keefe and a tongue-in-cheek punk rock commentary on Margaret Thatcher.

Sit back, turn up the volume and have a listen!

TEDWomen 2013 will be held in San Francisco, December 4-6, 2013, at the new SFJAZZ Center. Registration for the event opens today. Head to the TEDWomen site to find out how to apply »
