In this watershed moment we are in, with women courageously speaking their truths through #MeToo, stepping up to run for office in record numbers and becoming active in a multitude of ways, it seems that women’s voices are being heard more than ever before. Yet there are still so many important women’s stories that don’t make the headlines.
Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit, now in its ninth year, offers a platform for those powerful individual stories to be told, bringing together strong female role models from all industries whose experiences illuminate the most pressing domestic and international issues.
The ninth annual Women of the World Summit is being held this week, April 12th-14th, at New York City’s Lincoln Center. The Summit will feature groundbreaking conversations from the #MeToo fallout, dark new trends in human trafficking, the battle for pay equity, the women transforming the restaurant business, how digital innovation is disrupting intimate relationships and more.
This year’s event features over 100 influential speakers, including former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Academy award-winning actress and activist Viola Davis, celebrated author Margaret Atwood, Liberian Nobel laureate Leymah Gbowee, U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Lisa Murkowski, best-selling author and principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre Misty Copeland, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, MSNBC anchor Joy-Ann Reid and many others.
