WOW Sunday Pass

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Come and have your say on the final day of WOW and get up to date with talks, debates, workshops and discussion groups exploring the most relevant topics for women and girls – and the men and boys who support them.

WOW Sunday includes a live recording of hit-podcast SRSLY with hosts Caroline Crampton and Anna Leszkiewicz; examinations of the power structures that support male violence against women; conversations about race and motherhood; Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong, a look at how scientific research women has been plagued by mistakes and bias for more than a century, and the breakthrough work that’s happening to correct it; along with drop-in workshops and more.

We close the WOW weekend with the WOW Den, a chance to share your idea for change with the audience and our esteemed panel of judges, and the chance to win a marvellous prize.

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 Sunday 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.
