Priyanka Chopra shared a few Instagram stories from the event. One of them read, "Now because of the support we (women) are giving each other, people don't have the power to shut us down." Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram to share a picture of herself at the event as well. She captioned the photo: "So proud to share the stage with the incredible women who took the stage before me and after me at @womenintheworld. Your game-changing work is shaping the world and moving the much-needed needle for women. I applaud you and feel proud to have had the opportunity to share this platform with all of you. #TinaBrown, Thank you for having me. #WITW"

Priyanka went on to add that while women always had a voice, nobody wanted to hear them. But now, things have changed and a big reason why is because women have come out in support of each other.

Priyanka answered questions about her wedding to Nick Jonas, Indian actors in Hollywood, the #MeToo movement, and a lot of other things with great flair.
