WOW – Women of the World festival celebrates women and girls, and looks at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.
Around the world, individuals and communities are insisting on the simple proposition that women must have equal rights and asking the question: 'Why is gender equality taking so long to achieve?' Southbank Centre's WOW - Women of the World festival is a global network of festivals which provides a platform for investigating this question.
WOW 2017 speakers included Angela Davis, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Gillian Anderson. We'll be back in London in 2018 with another incredible line-up.
