Women in the World

THE EIGHTH ANNUAL WOMEN IN THE WORLD SUMMIT

Presented by Tina Brown Live Media in association with The New York Times.

Women who are on the front lines in over 20 countries come to tell their stories in this compelling three-day event. They are activists, CEOs, peacemakers, entrepreneurs, and firebrand dissidents. They've saved and enriched lives and shattered glass ceilings in every sector. Presenting vivid journalistic narratives, stirring videos, and provocative discussions, the Women in the World Summit is the premier showcase for women of impact and for the men who champion them.

This year’s participants include: actress Scarlett Johansson; acclaimed Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; writer, producer, director, actor Lena Dunham; the CEO and co-founder of SOHO China, the largest real estate developer in China, Zhang Xin; President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Cecile Richards; journalist and writer Zineb el Rhazoui; and Ukrainian Parliament member and former fighter pilot Nadiya Savchenko. Additional participants will be announced over the next several weeks.
