The ninth annual Women in the World Summit is taking place April 12-14, 2018 at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City. The event is presented and co-hosted by Toyota.
Contributing writer at The New Yorker Ronan Farrow will moderate a panel with Italian actress Asia Argento and Italian model Ambra B. Gutierrez, two women who stood up to disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
“Storytelling is at the heart of every cultural and political revolution. Looking forward to joining Women in the World (event) with brave women who will share accounts of living under tyrants and discuss threats to democracies around the world and at home,” Clinton tweeted.
In one of the segments of the event, former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates – who was fired by President Donald Trump for refusing to defend his travel ban – discusses if Trump will fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller is leading an investigation to know the extent of Trump-Russia ties that may have helped Trump win 2016 presidential race.
Storytelling is at the heart of every cultural & political revolution. Looking forward to joining @WomenintheWorld tomorrow w/ 4 brave women who will share accounts of living under tyrants & discuss threats to democracies around the world & at home.https://t.co/sPQDrR8xuM #WITW
