ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: After three years and just 200 attendees, magazine editor Tina Brown has turned her Women in the World summit into an event that now attracts thousands. Brown founded the summit in 2010 after being inspired by Vital Voices, an organization that works with female leaders in business, politics and human rights. After having success with the summits Brown created the Women in the World Foundation, which is an avenue for all to learn more about the issues facing women and girls around the world. Actress Angelina Jolie is making her inaugural visit to the summit and spoke during the opening night program. On the red carpet before the event Jolie said helping others is what life it about. "I think what are we in this world if we can't give back to others in some, it really does - it's a happier life. I had a wonderful mother I learned a lot about women through her, I have great daughters who teach me a lot about the strength of women and little girls. And I've meet amazing people around the world who have inspired me and taught me to be better," Jolie told Reuters. Actress Debra Messing, said she was honored to have been invited to the event, and is very aware of the work that still needs to be done for women all around the world. The summit will run from March 8-March 10 and will include appearances by actress Meryl Streep and designer Diane von Furstenberg.
