Part of WOW – Women of the World

Consider the ideas that matter to women in an event led by Jude Kelly, founder of WOW – Women of the World.

From the toughest realities many women and girls face every day, to the greatest triumphs, we present an afternoon of stories and performances designed to blow your mind and change your world view, featuring some of the best speakers, performers, activists and thinkers in the field.

Since 2011, thousands of people have come to WOW – Women of the World festival across six continents. Sixty festivals, millions of conversations and loads of change later, here is what women from Cardiff to Karachi, Bradford to Baltimore and Australia to the Americas care about most.

We look at violence, money, motherhood, and what it means to live your life with a double whammy of sexism and racism, disability, or homophobia.

There are stories about friendship, love, pain, anger, joy and grief, and confusion about fitting into a world that is changing very quickly in its politics, technology and cultural norms.

WOW – Women of the World festival is a global movement founded by Jude Kelly at Southbank Centre in 2010, celebrating women and girls and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.

As it becomes The WOW Foundation, an independent charity with national and global reach, WOW is preparing major festivals to celebrate its tenth birthday in 2020.
