CHARLOTESVILLE, Va. -- Two women who ran for president in 2016 are headlining an annual summit and festival in Charlottesville.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who ran as a Republican candidate, will speak at the ninth annual Tom Tom Summit & Festival on April 14 at the Paramount Theater.

Clinton and Fiorina are expected to discuss how women have reshaped politics, policy and power in 21st-century America, and what's next for women as voters, candidates and party leaders.

The conversation will be moderated by Melody Barnes who is the co-director of the University of Virginia's Democracy Initiative.
