I am excited to share that San Antonio’s Charline McCombs Empire Theatre will host Women in the World’s signature live event on October 22nd. This event will draw a national and international spotlight not only to our great city but to critical women’s issues and the messages of prominent women change makers.
Women in the World focuses on global women’s issues and the event features celebrities, leaders, and change makers. For the upcoming event, only a handful of tickets remain to be sold; a testament to both the significance of the event and our community’s support of women’s issues. Women in the World is produced and co-hosted by Tina Brown of Vanity Fair, Newsweek, and the Daily Beast.
The San Antonio forum features Dr. Jill Biden; Gloria Steinem; Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison; Ambassador Karen Hughes; Mayor Ivy Taylor; Diane von Furstenberg, Former White House Advisor Sonya Medina Williams; author and journalist Marie Brenner; art patron and activist Aaronetta Pierce; President of 3N Group Guillermo Nicolas; Eva Longoria; Houston Mayor Annise Parker; Rosie Castro, Congressman Joaquin Castro, myself (CM) and others.
This year’s forum will include discussions on the important topics of violence against women; the current face of feminism; challenges faced by military wives, mothers, and caregivers; the importance of a mother’s influence; young women in Africa; women and immigration; and how Texas women are shaping state and national politics
A portion of ticket proceeds will go to the Foundation for Education of Young Women. Women in the World Texas is supported by presenting sponsor Toyota and leadership sponsors Include the City of San Antonio and Credit Suisse.
