We had the privilege to cover the Women In The World Summit event. Women In the World Summit is a movement dedicated to advancing women and girls through stories and solutions.  This year the Summit was held at Lincoln Center in NYC and over 2,500 women from all over the world attended this event.  Every year this Summit spreads a light  to amazing stories from courageous women and girls. Many celebrities supported this event from Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Diane Von Furstenberg, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks , Eva Longria and so much more.  The spotlight was on the true heroes, the women and young girls who were making a difference.  During this event , women from all over the world discussed major issues , laugh , cried and celebrated big and small victories.
