”Women in power” was the theme of the second day of the Women in the World Summit. Leymah Gbowee, founder and president of the Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa not only stressed the importance of being an activist but also the importance of educating women.
The first day of the Women in the World Summit was absolutely amazing. The day opened up with a haunting song by Suma from Nepal, a girl sold into indentured servitude by her family. Her story has been shared by 10x10, an organization which made a feature film profiling 10 girls in 10 countries, all with the message that educating girls in developing nations will change the world.
I had the incredible opportunity to attend the third annual “Women in the World – Stories & Solutions” event at the David H. Koch Theater at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
