Women in the World London Forum

London

Women in the World, in partnership with Edelman, brought a series of intimate conversations to London for a closer look at the women on the front lines who share their stories and illuminate the most pressing issues facing our world today.

We had some fantastic women join us including the Hon. Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservative Party and the most popular politician in Scotland today, as well as Robi Damelin and Bushra Awad, two extraordinary mothers – one Israeli and one Palestinian – whose sons were shot and killed in the bitter conflict now turning their personal tragedy into reconciliation and forgiveness.

This series was generously supported by Toyota and Mastercard.
