The 2020 Women in the World Summit will take place April 2-3, 2020 in New York City during a year in which the U.S. will be marking the 100th anniversary of when women became full citizens by winning the right to vote, a milestone both in the women’s movement and in American democracy.

This year’s Summit will feature a bold line-up – including actress, icon and best-selling author Demi Moore, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge, female Kurdish warrior Commander Nesrin Abdullah, Nobel laureate Esther Duflo, Surviving R. Kelly documentarian dream hampton, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde, Hong Kong activist Denise Ho, journalist and activist Gretchen Carlson, Endeavor CMO Bozoma St. John, and Corinne Vella, sister of heroic murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, with more compelling participants to be released. 

Women in the World is a live journalism platform, a lens through which to see the world, a master class in female leadership and an accelerator for activism.

Tina Brown founded Women in the World in 2009 to discover and amplify the unheard voices of global women on the front lines of change. Women in the World takes you past the pablum and news skims and shares unflinching narratives that illuminate the long march for gender equality, shine a light on places where women’s voices are never heard, and celebrate the women who live with courage and passion both in the spotlight and on the margins.

The Women in the World Summit, presents powerful new female role models whose personal stories illuminate the most pressing international issues. They range from CEOs and world leaders to artists, activists, peacemakers, and firebrand dissidents. The Summit’s vivid journalistic narratives, high-impact video, and fast-paced staging have made it the premier platform to showcase women of impact. Increasingly, Women in the World also includes the participation, onstage and in the audience, of men who champion women.
