Editor of The Daily Beast Tina Brown, who has long been involved with Vital Voices, announced the first annual Women in the World summit on February 17. The three-day summit will “showcase leaders on the frontlines working on innovative solutions to challenges ranging from sex slavery to girls’ education in the developing world to women caught in the violence of war zones.”

On the opening night of the summit, Meryl Streep will join fellow Academy Award winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo and five other critically acclaimed actresses to stage a reading of SEVEN, the documentary play produced by Vital Voices that tells the stories of seven remarkable women in our network. This production is graciously being led by renowned director Julie Taymor.
