Fatima Bhutto: "Don't Write To Save The World—Write To Break Barriers"
Bhutto was part of a group of esteemed speakers that took part in the "Women Up" portion of the summit. Joined by social change speaker Jessica Jackley (read more about her speech here), the speeches focused on how to join together and make a difference despite facing obstacles. A passionate speaker, Bhutto brings a modest intelligence to the stage and weaves together her own personal experiences with current events to provide unique insights into what's going on around us. She is also a renowned author and has written for the The Guardian, The New Statesman, and The Daily Beast. Her book, Songs of Blood and Sword, chronicles a harrowing time in Pakistan's charged political climate. Bold, but not offensive, Bhutto presents a holistic look at the world and the forces responsible for altering its trajectory—and all of our lives in the process.
