2014 Women in the World Texas
Women in the World Texas, at San Antonio’s Charline McCombs Empire Theatre. A heroic nun, a feminist trailblazer, a fashion icon, and women who’ve helped change the face of politics are among those who will light up the stage. The forum will showcase Tina Brown’s signature blend of theatrical journalism, highlighting a compelling array of social, cultural and humanitarian leaders from around the world.
Newly announced additions to the program include a special appearance by Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, who will shine a spotlight on the sacrifices made by military families, plus a timely panel topic with Sarah Crowe, chief of crisis communications at UNICEF in New York, who will address the Ebola situation in Africa and the urgent need for international aid to combat the spread of the disease.
Special guests and co-hosts include Tina Brown with Gloria Steinem, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Ambassador Karen Hughes, Diane von Furstenberg, Eva Longoria, Sonya Medina Williams, art patron and activist Aaronetta Pierce, President of 3N Group Guillermo Nicolas, San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley, San Antonio Mayor Ivy R.
