The Daily Beast Editor in Chief Tina Brown and co-hosts Diane von Furstenberg, Meryl Streep, and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, along with partners Women for Women International, Vital Voices Global Partnership and founding event co-sponsor HP, announced the second annual Women in the World Summit on Tuesday. Scheduled in New York City from March 10 through 12, the event will feature Condoleezza Rice, Ingrid Betancourt, Ashley Judd, Michelle Rhee, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, among many others. The summit will focus on women who have risen above global challenges like sex trafficking and child marriage, and introduce women executives who are revolutionizing business culture. "Women are the mothers of invention and this summit will bring together the inspirational people and ideas generating remarkable success stories all over the world," said Brown.
