Trust Women Conference – A new initiative launched by the International Herald Tribune and Thomson Reuters Foundation.

With a unique legal framework, Trust Women will help spark new collaborations, commitments and solutions to defend women.

Much more than a talking shop – the Conference is to bring law firms and corporates together with NGOs working on the front line and policymakers to pool intelligence and resources and debate what works and what doesn’t in the defence of women’s rights.

Speakers include Cherie Blair, Lawyer and founder, Cherie Blair Foundation for Women; Chris Patten, Chairman, BBC Trust, Chancellor, Oxford University; Christy Turlington Burns, Founder, Every Mother Counts, Filmmaker, Author, Model; Queen Noor, Author and Humanitarian; Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Author and Founder of the AHA Foundation and Mariane Pearl, Journalist and Author, A Mighty Heart…

Main themes for the conference include ‘When culture clashes with the law’ and ‘Women for sale’, engaging issues such as:

• Child marriage
• The modern day slave trade
• Embedding women’s rights in new constitutions
• FGM and « cultural » attitudes affecting women’s health
• Access to finance and education
• Corruption
• The Arab spring: opportunity or disaster for women
