At the first night of the 2012 Women in the World summit, panel discussions ranged from forced marriage to the U.S.’s role in ending Syrian bloodshed. Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright called on the White House to take a stand against Bashar al-Assad’s violent regime and Angelina Jolie shared the story of Dr. Hawa Abdi, a Somalian obstetrician nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for saving the lives of thousands of refugees at a medical camp now controlled by militants. And International Monetary Fund chief Christine Legarde proposed solutions for fixing the global economy.
