women of the world programme kicks off at Southbank


The 5 day festival celebrating the women of the world kicks of today at The Southbank Centre. 

Featuring talks, debates, performance and activism celebrating women and girls and covering everything from politics, science and sex to fashion, war and power – the WoW festival is an ambitious, jam packed affair. 

Highlights include a talk from Malala Yousafzai, the young activist who was shot by a Taliban gunman in 2012 for her views on girls rights to education, and a conversation between Vivienne Westwood and Libertys director Shami Chakrabarti.
