Women in the World: London

Women who are on the front lines of change come to tell their stories at this compelling two-day event. They are activists, artists, CEOs, peacemakers, entrepreneurs, and firebrand dissidents. They’ve saved and enriched lives and shattered glass ceilings in every sector. Presented by Tina Brown Live Media in association with The New York Times, the Women in the World Summit is the most influential and uniquely theatrical showcase for women of impact — and for the men who champion them.

A recurring theme at the Summit will be Generation Girl — in exclusive partnership with Dove — that highlights extraordinary young women from around the world who are breaking down barriers.

Join us to meet the women and girls you won’t forget!
