Women in the World Washington D.C. 2018
Women in the World held its annual Washington D.C. Salon on March 7, 2018, at The United States Institute of Peace. Watch highlights from the event above.
The salon kicked off with opening remarks from Women in the World founder and CEO Tina Brown, who then hosted a conversation with International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde. They spoke about tariffs, #MeToo movement, and the power of love.
On stage next was CBS Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan, who moderated a conversation on the Rohingya crisis with Dr. Fozia Alvi and Tania Rashid, foreign correspondent for PBS NewsHour. Alvi and Rashid discussed their experiences inside the refugee camps that are now home to this long-persecuted Muslim minority.
Toyota honored Danya Sherman as a 2018 Mother of Invention. Sherman is the founder and CEO of KnoNap, an incredible product she invented as a solution to root out the prevalence of drug-facilitated sexual assault.
The evening concluded with a ‘PerSisters‘ panel, moderated by author, media commentator and founder of Women for Women International Zainab Salbi. She led a conversation with former Marine fighter pilot and Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress from Kentucky, Amy McGrath, powerhouse union leader and women’s rights organizer Elise Bryant and conservative columnist Mona Charen, who created an uproar at CPAC for speaking her truth on Trump and sexual harassment.
Tina Brown returned to the stage to close out the evening with some final remarks.
