Tina M. Tchen was quoted on March 1, 2018 in a Chicago Tribune article, “Valerie Jarrett, Tina Tchen announce second United State of Women Summit in L.A.,” which noted, “Like the inaugural gathering two years ago, this one will bring together organizations and advocates focused on issues affecting women and girls: The gender pay gap, campus sexual assault and accessibility to child care and health care. With a second summit, Tchen said she hopes to harness the energy among many American women that has built over the past year, starting with the Women's March in January 2017 and carrying through #MeToo and the #TimesUp movement.”

Tchen stated, “We're really trying to provide some infrastructure and support and connectivity to that energy.” She mentioned the summit aims to educate women on this issues and associate the issues with action items. She added, “We do our work as women and activists in silos - and that's not how women live their lives. That's how your average woman is struggling with her issues in her life and can't figure out the alphabet soup of policies that are coming out of Washington and elsewhere.”
