The antidote to bullying | Constance Hall | TEDxChristchurch

Constance Hall had it all: she was a successful blogger with over a million followers who hung on her every word. Behind the scenes, though, she was struggling to cope with the flood of bullying filling her feed. In her trademark raw, unfiltered style, Constance shares the harsh reality of her own experience, and offers each of us a simple way to combat bullying for good. Constance Hall is an Australian blogger, freedom fighter, Queen lover, social media sensation and founder of fashion line ‘Queen The Label’. She is best known for her highly successful and publicised Facebook blog and her trademark unflinching honesty and humour.

Con’s following has disrupted the social boundaries of how women are represented and celebrated; together with her fans—dubbed Queens—she’s created a community of women who feel understood and supported. Her two books, ‘Like a Queen’ and ‘Still a Queen’ are what she calls extended middle fingers to a world that wants to label women as used goods and failures. “If my embarrassing, awkward and sometimes shameful story helps one Queen it’s a success,” she says.

Con is also a lifelong member and ambassador of the charity Rafiki Mwema, which supports young children in Kenya who have been sexually abused. With the help of her community, she has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for them. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
