WOW Friday Pass

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Celebrate ten years of WOW – Women of the World and dive into a day of talks and workshops exploring the most talked-about issues facing women and girls today.

WOW is home to inquistive, inclusive discussions where everyone is welcome, covering topics as diverse as finances, sex, global feminism and climate change.

Tackling the world’s tumultuous political landscape, highlights on Friday include a diverse line-up of brilliant speakers investigating politics, business and economics, alongside events exploring everything from motherhood to fashion.

This year WOW takes over Southbank Centre with the return of WOW Speed Mentoring, WOW Bites and the WOW Market.

Young people take centre stage – look out for the WOWsers! – and the building is alive with pop-ups and performances.

The WOW Foundation produces festivals across the world to celebrate women and girls, and raise awareness globally.

Led by Jude Kelly CBE, WOW festivals have reached two million people in over 15 countries, from Baltimore to Brazil, Cardiff to Karachi.

WOW festivals are presented by arrangement with Southbank Centre.
