WOW: What Next?

Part of WOW – Women of the World

In an age of hyperconnectivity, extreme ideas and political turmoil, what’s in store for the future of gender equality?

WOW – Women of the World festival is your crystal ball, with up-to-date and relevant discussions on urgent topics for the future of women and girls – and the men and boys who support them.

Hear from the women helping us imagine an equal world – from those on the frontlines of global movements to girls and young women changing our world for the better – with talks, poetry, performance, dispatches from international WOW festivals and pop-ups.

Get inspired to change the world and shape our future by the courage, initiative and intelligence of some of the most badass women around!

WOW – Women of the World festival is a global movement founded by Jude Kelly at Southbank Centre in 2010, celebrating women and girls and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.

As it becomes The WOW Foundation, an independent charity with national and global reach, WOW is preparing major festivals to celebrate its tenth birthday in 2020.
