“Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is set as one of the headliners at Tina Brown’s annual Women in the World Summit in April.
“I’m thrilled PWB will be on our stage,” Brown exclusively told Page Six. “Phoebe is our culture’s leading lady with her scorching talent and sly, subversive wit. I met with Phoebe last month at Dean Street Townhouse in London and was totally felled by her.”
The theme of this year’s summit is “Truth to Power” and will center on women taking a stand against corruption, autocracy, sexism, climate change, harassment and more.
Along with the Emmy winner, Hong Kong activist and artist Denise Ho has also been announced as a summit participant. Past speakers and participants have included Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Pelosi, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Viola Davis, Diane von Furstenberg and Anna Wintour.
The summit, which was founded in 2009, will take place at Lincoln Center in New York from April 2-3.
