Tackling topics from the deeply serious to the seriously funny, Southbank Centre’s WOW – Women of the World festival celebrates women and girls and looks at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential. Hear from outstanding thought leaders, trailblazers, activists and innovators, and join the debate on wide-reaching such as politics, love, relationships, consent, war and peacekeeping, the refugee crisis, gay rights, the media, black women’s bodies, older women’s voices, and whether we feel complicated about Beyonce.

Returning for its sixth year, the week-long WOW festival takes place in the week of International Women’s Day (8 March) and features over 150 events, including talks, debates, music, workshops, performances, our smash-hit WOW Speed Mentoring and the WOW Market. Whether we’re discussing violence against women, the role of men in gender equality, social justice or women’s histories, all sessions are designed to feed your mind, nourish your soul and quench your thirst for knowledge, change and ideas.deas.
