About the Event
“Dangerous times call for dangerous women,” Mitchell tells us, and in sharing her story, she encourages others to braver and bolder, to dismantle the barriers to full equality they see in their own lives, and to embrace risk to create a more equitable world.
Pat Mitchell is a dangerous woman. What makes Pat Mitchell dangerous is her lifelong insistence on redefining power on her terms, and in leveraging that power to manifest a better world.
In Becoming a Dangerous Woman, she shares her own path to power, from a childhood spent on a cotton farm in the South to her unprecedented rise in media and global affairs. Alongside revelatory interviews with other dangerous women, Mitchell takes us on a lively journey, sharing with readers intimate anecdotes about navigating the power paradigms of Washington DC and Hollywood, traveling to war zones with Eve Ensler and Glenn Close, pressing Fidel Castro into making a historic admission about the Cold War, and matching wits with Ted Turner and Robert Redford.
Pat will be in conversation with feminist activist Cecile Lipworth.
