After a status quo-shattering end to 2017, the Women of the World festival is more than needed than ever. And the 2018 edition does not dissappoint, featuring a killer line-up that champions everything good and great going on in the world of women. Expect a programme of discussion, debate, performances and activism, all of which celebrate female achievements and highlight the obstacles that prevent them from achieving their full potential.
From #MeToo and No Grey Area, to Time’s Up and the Golden Globes protest, the world has seen a historical shift in women standing together against marginalisation, to say ‘no more’. In the 100th anniversary year since the first British women won the right to vote, Southbank Centre’s eighth WOW festival is not one to miss.
Famous female artists, writers and activists including Munroe Bergdorf, Afua Hirsch, Sandi Toksvig, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, and Laura Bates (to name a few) are uniting to call for solutions to modern societal challenges – and what lies ahead – for women.
Day passes (£30) and three-day weekend passes (£80) that admit visitors to all daytime events are available alongside tickets for individual events, including some free ones. Visit the WOW site to see the full programme of events and to book.
