WOW [Women of The World] Festival of Inspiring Women

WOW [Women of The World] Festival of Inspiring Women was a vibrant week-long programme of events in Folkestone to mark International Women’s Day, 2015. It was co-curated by Leah, the Quarterhouse and Folkestone Fringe and run in association with the Southbank Centre, London.


It featured a packed programme that celebrated the incredible achievements of women and girls and looked at the most potent topics for women today.




wow1There were panel discussions, lunchtime talks, activism workshops, a Feminist Folkestone walk, live music and comedy, theatre and poetry performances, as well as an outreach programme to young women at college and school. And shop windows in the Creative Quarter overflowed with lines of poetry from a group poem written during the year by women and girls in Folkestone.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.
    Outstanding Blog!
