No More.

Part of WOW – Women of the World

WOW London brings together women on the front line of global movements who are transforming the future by demanding 'No More'.

No more violence.
No more harassment.
No more silence.

The #BlackLivesMatter movement continues to mobilise activists from across the world to protest against continuing violence towards people of colour. The Women’s March on Washington in 2017 was close to being the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history, with a worldwide participation estimated at five million. And in the same year, women have openly come forward to unravel historic sexual assault allegations sweeping Hollywood, Westminster, and almost every sector, artform and industry globally.

In the centenary of women's suffrage, where some women got the right to vote after a long campaign of direct action, come and hear what's next for these global campaigns.

Special guests include:

Patrisse Khan-Cullors – co-founder of Black Lives Matter. An artist, organiser, and freedom fighter from Los Angeles, California, she is also a performance artist, Fulbright scholar, popular public speaker, and an NAACP History Maker.

Laura Bates – pioneering feminist, activist and author of books including Everyday Sexism and Misogynation: The True Scale of Sexism. Sharing the often ignored acts of sexism, Laura has been exposing the startling truth behind sexism since she started the Everyday Sexism Project in 2012.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu – lawyer and founder of Women in Leadership publication, which she established to further promote the cause for equality and diversity. She is also an activist for women's rights and one of the organisers of the Women's March London.

Nidhi Goyal – Mumbai-based activist, trainer, and comedian advocating for disability rights and gender justice. She is visually impaired and uses humour to challenge existing notions around disability, gender and sexuality. Nidhi is currently participating in a Civil Society Advisory Group to the UN Women initiative.
