The America Women Know

American women have lived their daily lives — before and after the epic election of 2016 and its accompanying drama — up against a set of structures, barriers, and mindsets that rarely make the headlines. What is it like to be a woman in America today? Which circumstances and experiences bind us together — and which ones tear us apart? Leaders share the experiences they live and the answers they have found that could help our divided nation. The panel includes the speakers listed below and Rochelle Keyhan, director of Disruption Strategies at Polaris and an Aspen Ideas Festival 2017 Scholar.
