WOW – Women of the World festival celebrates women and girls, and looks at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.
Never has it been more relevant than now when people are paying attention to the positioning of women in society, equal rights is the subject in everyone’s lips as the #MeToo and #TimeUp movement give a bigger voice to those campaigning for gender equality and asking: why is gender equality taking so long?
Southbank Centre’s #WOW – Women of the World festival is a global network of festivals which provides a platform for celebrating what has been achieved, and exploring all the ways we can change the world for the better.
Marking the 100th anniversary since some women got the vote in the UK, and the festival brings together artists, writers, politicians, comedians, activists and more for the 8th annual WOW London.
#WOW London runs Wednesday 7 – Sunday 11 March, 2018 with a programme of talks and debates, concerts, performances, art installations, workshops and more. Where: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX. Buy tickets here.
