Women of the World Festival (WOW)
WOW - Women of the World Festival 2012 is a celebration of the formidable strength and inventiveness of women, running 7-11 March. This annual festival presents and recognises women from all walks of life, acting as a conversation space for issues of all kinds. WOW includes lively talks and debates about politics, the arts, economics, fashion, science, health, sport and big ideas. Take part in mentoring and workshops and hear from celebrities, politicians, artists and activists on the topics that matter to women worldwide.
