Power Women Breakfast New York: Panel joins actress Cynthia Nixon at event on Thursday

TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast New York on Thursday is now underway with a panel of prominent and politically engaged women: attorney Lisa Bloom, who represented several Fox News employees accusing ousted host Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment, NYC Public Advocate Letitia James and Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras, whose works include “Citizenfour” and the upcoming Julian Assange profile “Risk.”

In addition, participants in the event included Emmy- and Tony-winning actress Cynthia Nixon, Beautycon Media CEO Moj Mahdara and Ibtihaj Muhammad, the U.S. sabre fencer who became the first Muslim American to compete at the Olympics while wearing a hijab.

The June 29 breakfast is hosted by TheWrap founder Sharon Waxman, film and TV producer Laura Wagner and Shelley Zalis, CEO of the Female Quotient and founder of The Girls’ Lounge.

The Power Women Breakfast series brings together influential women of entertainment, media, technology and brands in key cities to network and connect. TheWrap has built a broad community of professional women who are decision makers and mothers, leaders and wives, innovators and activists.
