Badass Women from History

Part of WOW – Women of the World

What can the traits of pioneering, trailblazing women teach us about how to change the world?

Our speakers tell fantastic stories of resilience, joy, hardship, strength and downright persistence.

Come along to hear about the lives of women who’ve paved the way for so many others, and who’ve so often gone unrecognised.

Beware – you may be inspired to do something huge.
