Women in the World 2012 Summit Countdown Begins!
Next month, extraordinary leaders and activists from around the globe—including Nobel laureate Leymah Gbowee, Meryl Streep, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Madeleine Albright, IMF Chief Christine Lagarde, and many more—will gather in New York City to kick off Newsweek & The Daily Beast’s third-annual Women in the World summit. Learn how you can buy tickets, and preview our lineup of inspiring events.
We’re doing it again! In less than a month, from March 8 though 10, remarkable leaders from every field will gather in New York City for Newsweek & The Daily Beast’s third-annual Women in the World Summit. Hosted by Tina Brown, Diane von Furstenberg, Jane Harman, Leymah Gbowee, Sheryl Sandberg, Meryl Streep, Lauren Bush, Nizan Guanaes, Maya Harris, Mellody Hobson, and Judith Rodin, the event will feature three days of storytelling by trailblazing women, and encourage creative solutions to the challenges facing women and girls across the globe.
From brave women dissidents who toppled Middle East regimes to former secretary of state Madeleine Albright on war’s harrowing impact on women; from an inspiring look at how girls are harnessing social media to transform adolescence to IMF chief Christine Lagarde on the global economy’s next act; from a hard look at domestic slavery to frank discussions with firebrands including Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, broadcast legends Barbara Walters and Christiane Amanpour, and activists from around the world, the 2012 summit promises to reveal the vital stories that are often ignored—and to provoke action. See our complete lineup of events and participant list, and check back often for updates.
We’re also bigger than ever this year. After two fabulous years at Times Square’s Hudson Theater, we’ve moved into Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater, where tickets are now on sale. One-hundred percent of ticket proceeds benefit the Women in the World Foundation.
Hope to see you there!
