Women in the World Summit 2020
Time Out says
UPDATE: The Women in the World Summit has been canceled due to coronavirus.
Truth to power! That’s the inspiring theme of this year’s Women in the World Summit—a gathering where impressive and powerful women put on a series of uncensored talks and panels at Lincoln Center. This year, Emmy and Golden Globe winning writer of "Fleabag", Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is taking stage as a headliner.
Throughout the course of the two-day event (April 2–April 3), tickets holders will hear discussions about taking a stand against corruption, autocracy, sexism, climate change and harassment. Those spotlighted will dig deep on how women have battled against powerful male predators and their enablers, systemic misogyny, how to regain control of digital identity and more.
"During a time when truth has become optional to some, I'm thrilled to convene this sensational lineup of bold, brave hearted women who are speaking truth to power, and removing the support beams of misogyny, injustice, and apathy,” explains Founder of Women in the World Tina Brown.
Other names you'll find on this year's bill are Hong Kong activist and artist Denise Ho, Surviving R. Kelly documentarian Dream Hampton, female Kurdish warrior Commander Nesrin Abdullah, actress and author Demi Moore, nobel laureate Esther Duflo, among other empowering femmes.
Past speakers and participants have included Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Pelosi, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Viola Davis, Diane von Furstenberg and Anna Wintour.
Tickets are available online!
