Join us for the 2020 Women in the World Summit taking place April 2-3, 2020 in New York City during a year in which the U.S. will be marking the 100th anniversary of when women became full citizens by winning the right to vote, a milestone both in the women’s movement and in American democracy.
Since its launch in 2010, Women in the World has become one of America's foremost forums to showcase the work of women leaders and trailblazers from around the world.
This year's Summit will feature a bold line-up – including Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge, female Kurdish warrior Commander Nesrin Abdullah, Nobel laureate Esther Duflo, Surviving R. Kelly documentarian dream hampton, actress, icon and best-selling author Demi Moore, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde, Hong Kong activist Denise Ho, journalist and activist Gretchen Carlson, Endeavor CMO Bozoma St. John, and Corinne Vella, sister of heroic murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, with more compelling participants to be announced.
Speakers are set to discuss how women have battled against powerful male predators and their enablers; the effects of systemic misogyny; how to regain control of digital identity; how violence against women does not always come with physical blows; how women are leading in climate change activism; and much more.
Past participants have included Oprah Winfrey, Ronan Farrow, Christine Lagarde, Malala Yousafzai, Kamala D. Harris, Leymah Gbowee, Angelina Jolie, Viola Davis, Diane von Furstenberg, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, Anna Wintour, Adwoa Aboah, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barbra Streisand, Dr. Mae Jemison, Terry Crews, and Priyanka Chopra among many other amazing women from all over the globe, and the men who champion them.
Join us for an exhilarating two days of conversations with women who will not be silenced by censorship, patriarchy, or injustice.
