In these tumultuous times and changing world order, how can Canada defend and lead the fight for the liberal values of the world and what is the unique role that women can play? That’s exactly the question addressed the second panel at the inaugural Women in the World Canada Summit in Toronto on Monday. Moderated by Women in the World Contributor and founder of Women for Women International Zainab Salbi, Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s minister of foreign affairs, and Margaret MacMillan, professor of history at Warden of St. Antony’s College in University of Oxford, talked about the increasingly unstable world we’re living in. With the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, Brexit, Kim Jong Un continuously launching missile tests, male leaders are making the world a tense place. Therefore, the world will look to women to shape the global future to avoid a “new world disorder.” Watch the full panel and highlights above.
