WOW Saturday Pass

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Get involved in the most up to date and relevant talks, debates, workshops and discussion groups on some of the most potent topics for women and girls – and the men and boys who support them – at WOW Saturday.

WOW Saturday sessions include Sweep Through the Year, a look at the highs and lows for women and girls in the last 12 months and exploring the some of the main stories by those who were involved; Breaking the Silence: Giving Testimony, a session where women who have survived sexual assault tell their stories, followed by a discussion group with women who have spoken out in the six years at WOW; plus sessions on Black Lives Matter, women and science fiction, intergenerational conversations, All the Single Ladies: a discussion group on the Dating Game and much more.

2018 sees the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, where some women in the UK could vote for the first time. We look at some of the stories of the women who paved this path for women’s rights, as well as looking at who didn’t get the vote at that time and why – and who still doesn’t.

WOW Saturday also includes free events like our smash-hit WOW Speed Mentoring, WOW Bites and the WOW Market with ideas and products to fill your mind and your shopping basket, music, performance and networking opportunities.

WOW – Women of the World is Southbank Centre's festival celebrating women and girls, and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential. It was founded by Jude Kelly at Southbank Centre in London and happens all over the world from Pakistan to Finland, and from Katherine in the Australian outback to New York City. This will be the eighth WOW festival in London.
