WOW - Women of the WorldOriginally launched in London back in 2010, the Women of the World Festival (WOW) celebrates its 10th birthday this year with its biggest and bravest line-up to date. Now a global movement with events all around the world, the festival celebrates women and girls while also examining the day-to-day obstacles they face. This year the London festival, which returns to the Southbank Centre once again, presents three days of talks from world-class speakers including Caroline Criado Perez, Emma Dabiri, Shazia Mirza, Deborah Frances-White and Sandi Toksvig. Topics of conversation include domestic abuse, dad and daughter relationships, how to have feminist sex and what it means to be British today.

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
