Tina Brown founded Women in the World as a live journalism platform in 2009 to discover and amplify the unheard voices of global women on the front lines of change. Women in the World 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.
Starting with one corporate partner and an audience of 300 at a small midtown theater in Manhattan, the Women in the World brand now crowns a year of national and international events with an annual sold-out summit every April at New York’s Lincoln Center. In April 2019, it celebrated its 10th anniversary Summit by asking the question ‘Can Women Save The World?’.
Other Women in the World events include salons across the U.S., a rotating international summit, as well as a film screening series, influencer dinners in Davos and during United Nations General Assembly week, and 51Fest, a film festival in collaboration with IFC. Women in the World events are unique in their global scope of highly respected, curated, purpose-driven storytelling.
