Hosted by Maria Shriver, Women's Conference Radio will feature key speeches and panels from The Women's Conference 2009 in their entirety, as well as behind-the-scenes interviews with speakers and attendees. Women's Conference Radio is a 24-hour channel and will air November 15 beginning at 12:00 am ET on SIRIUS channel 117 and XM channel 163.

The Women's Conference 2009 featured its signature "once-in-a-lifetime conversations" led by a distinguished roster of more than 100 speakers and participants including former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, Sir Richard Branson, Katie Couric, Elizabeth Edwards, Senior Advisor to the President Valerie B. Jarrett, Caroline Kennedy, Annie Leibovitz, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Robin Roberts and others.

The Women's Conference is produced by the non-profit, non-partisan organization, the California Governor and First Lady's Conference on Women, which was established more than twenty years ago.
