WOW – Women of the World is a festival of talks, debates, music, film, comedy and conversations that celebrates the talents of women young and old from all walks of life and all parts of the world. WOW asks what obstacles exist that prevent women from realising their potential and debates how to make progress. In WOW you’ll hear great stories from women who are breaking the mould in science, enterprise, law, the arts, health, activism, education, politics, sport, fashion , finance and family life. Speed mentoring, a market place, free music, crèche, great food and unexpected discoveries. 7,000 people came last year!
‘Throughout history, many women’s achievements have gone unnoticed or unsung. I created WOW – Women of the World Festival to celebrate the formidable power of women to make change happen, to remind us of our history, to draw attention to injustice, to enjoy each others company and to encourage men to add their support as we set out to achieve a fairer world.‘
