The 7th Annual Women in the World Summit proved to be another spellbinding installment in what is a perennial powerhouse event put on by Tina Brown. Hopefully you were in the audience or were able to watch the live stream of the show as it unfolded onstage. (If you didn’t, catch up on full recaps of every panel by visiting our homepage.) But even if you caught every moment from the stage, there was so much more going on behind the scenes that you probably missed. For instance, in the green room we handed guests who appeared onstage a Twitter mirror and asked them questions inspired by the Summit, like “Who is the woman you’re here for?” and “Who is the woman that inspires you?” People like Mindy Kaling, Christine Lagarde and Tom Friedman — and many, many more — all took a moment to give their answers. Look below to see what they said. And continue to follow Women in the World on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
