London’s Finest Feminist Fest, ‘Women of the World’ Kicks Off

Come women, come all to this charged event during which individuals and communities from around the world will champion the simple proposition that women and girls have equal rights and unapologetically ask the question, ‘Why is gender equality taking so long?’

In the year that marks the 100th anniversary since some women got the vote in the UK, and during this wave of #MeToo, artists, writers, politicians, comedians and activists come together in earnest for the 8th annual WOW London.
