Women Changing China brings together some of the most prominent women in China today – a media mogul, an acclaimed author, an award-winning filmmaker, and a renowned advocate for women’s rights. Through their leadership in government, commerce, academia, and the arts, these extraordinary women have echoed and built upon the work of Kang. With Barnard President Debora Spar serving as moderator, they will share their stories of success and their unique perspectives.It has been a century since Kang Tongbi followed the inspiration of her father, political reformist Kang Youwei, and helped to eliminate the traditional practice of foot-binding in China. Her activism contributed to a wave of improvements for the lives of women in her country, a role that women continue to play in advancing the role of women and in shaping and developing China.The event will take place on Thursday, March 19, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at the Park Hyatt Hotel, Beijing, China.
