Clinton set to speak at Women in the World summit in April
Hillary Clinton is joining a slew of big names — including Demi Moore, “Fleabag’s” Phoebe Waller-Bridge, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde and journalist Gretchen Carlson — at this year’s Women in the World summit.
ITK has exclusively learned that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee will participate in the 11th annual gathering at New York’s Lincoln Center in April.
Clinton is booked to sit down with Recode co-founder Kara Swisher for a conversation about the current political climate, including her thoughts on President Trump and the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
The ex-secretary of State’s appearance at the Tina Brown-founded summit will come on the heels of the March 6 premiere of the Hulu documentary about her 2016 White House bid, “Hillary.”
“Hillary always brings her A game of fascinating political insights and killer understanding of where the world is moving,” Brown told ITK in a statement. “As we’ll soon see in the Hillary documentary, battle scars bring wisdom.”
The theme for this year’s two-day summit starting April 2 will be “Truth to Power,” which organizers say will “spotlight global issues and women who are taking a stand against corruption, autocracy, sexism, educational inequality, climate change, harassment and more, despite the repercussions.”
