LONG BEACH -- Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, photographer Annie Leibovitz and Elizabeth Edwards are among the newsmakers and opinion leaders scheduled to take part in The Women's Conference 2009 Tuesday at the Long Beach Convention Center.
The event is hosted by California first lady Maria Shriver and Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger and has grown each year.
This year's event will feature Albright taking part in a panel on "How A Woman's Nation Changes Everything," while Shriver will host a discussion titled "Grief, Healing and Resilience," featuring actress Susan Saint James and Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former senator and vice presidential candidate John Edwards.
Kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart and her mother Lois will also take part in a panel discussion on "Overcoming the Unimaginable."
The Women's Conference was formerly called the California Governor and First Lady's Conference on Women. It began more than 20 years ago as a small
government initiative for women business owners.
