Time Out says

Billed as ‘the world’s biggest, most comprehensive festival celebrating women, girls and non-binary people’, WOW – Women of the World is back for 2023. Taking over the Southbank Centre on the weekend after International Women’s Day, it brings together activists, musicians, comedians, writers and other distinguished speakers for three days of invigorating conversations, workshops and performances.

This year’s lineup is as impressive as ever, with broadcasters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover unpacking the news of the day in an extended live edition of their podcast ‘Off Air… with Jane and Fi’, a talk from sexpert, relationship advisor and author of ‘The Big O, Oloni’ with Tolani Shoneye from The Receipts podcast and a conversation with Roxane Gay. Plus, talks, speeches and events from Australia’s first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard, award-winning speaker and activist Shani Dhanda, English actress, comedian, writer, producer and director Kathy Burke and journalist and broadcaster Sali Hughes. Check out the full lineup on the Southbank Centre website here
