Gave a TEDx speech on "gender and minority equality", titled "Stereotyping Gender — How Is This Still A Thing? | Linda Curika | TEDxRiga" on Youtube. Video description: "Gender stereotypes in media are capable of driving a sane person insane; yet still they persist. Is fighting stereotypes head-on hopeless? Linda is one of the first and most recognizable Latvian feminists. For more than 10 years she has observed and written about the ways the media stereotypes gender and minorities. Recently she has stopped writing and started talking, by way of stand-up comedy. During her spare time Linda writes stories. Mostly these are not published as Linda is considering the option of being one of those writers who are 'discovered' after their death."
