WOW Bites

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Come along to WOW Bites for short talks, performances, readings and soapbox moments delivered by all sorts of women with amazing stories. Four speakers cover a wide range of subjects from the serious to the very frivolous.

Speakers include Alia Alzougbi on Finding Her Religion: Bringing out the Radical Spiritualist through Muslim Tales; Azadeh Fatehrad on Iran’s Women’s Movement and the day in 1979 when 100,000 Iranian women demonstrated for their rights; Anne Lydiat on following in the wake of women explorers; Maureen Mansfield on building solutions instead of prisons; and Lliana Bird, broadcaster and co-founder of Help Refugees, on how a social
media hashtag turned into a movement.

This session will begin with a short performance of ‘I Smile’ by Leanna Benjamin.
