Organised by WOW - Women of the World
WOW Rotherham is back for a second year in 2023 with a vibrant, colourful, bold, fun and fearless festival celebration of women, girls and non-binary communities, connecting Rotherham to other women and girls across the globe as part of the WOW family.
WOW Rotherham is organised by Flux Rotherham, Rotherham Council Events Team and Children’s Capital of Culture in partnership with The WOW Foundation. Head to WOW Rotherham's website to sign up for updates as the programme is announced in the coming months.
The WOW Foundation works in partnership with amazing women and organisations to create WOW Festivals across the world. The WOW organisers in each location ensure the content is created by the local community for the local community. While each festival is different in its own wonderful, unique way, there are elements that stay consistent at every WOW Festival wherever you are in the world; from the WOW Marketplace to Under 10's Feminist Corners.
In the past decade, the WOW movement has grown from its London beginnings to find homes everywhere from Beijing and Kathmandu to Baltimore and Brisbane.
To date, there have been more than 100 festivals and events across six continents, reaching more than five million people from thousands of women in favelas at WOW Rio to Territory women at WOW Katherine.
