What does WildChina Founder have in common with Angelina Jolie and Madeline Albright?

By: WildChina | Categories: WildChina Announcements, Zhang Mei

Alongside Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie and Madeline Albright, WildChina Founder Mei Zhang will be speaking at the annual Women in the World Conference held this week in New York City.

 

Organized by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, the select 150 women are defined as:

“They are heads of state and heads of household, angry protesters in the city square and sly iconoclasts in remote villages. With a fiery new energy, women are building schools, starting businesses, fighting corruption, harnessing new technologies and breaking down old prejudices. Whenever a woman or girl gains control of her destiny, the local standard of living goes up and the values of human rights spread. So this year, and every year, Newsweek and The Daily Beast will honor local heroes, and the growing network of powerful women who support their efforts.”

Mei Zhang, Founder of WildChina

 

Mei, alongside Amy Chua, Diane von Furstenberg and Melinda Liu of Newsweek and Tian Hou, a well known China financier and political activist will be speaking on the panel, “Women of China; the Ambition Conflict.” The panel will be held on Friday,  March 9 at 1.15pm at NYC”s Lincoln Center. The moderator is Barbara Walters (who, by the way, went with Nixon to China.)
