WOW – Women of the World presents an evening filled with optimism, determination and laughter to celebrate International Women’s Day 2024.

Led by WOW’s Founder Jude Kelly, the evening will feature best-selling author Elif Shafak, writer Liv Little and writer and performer Jordan Stephens to tell urgent stories from around the world, as we come together to celebrate the achievements of women, girls and non-binary people, take a frank look at the obstacles they face and discuss solutions for change.

As part of the evening we’ll open a cabinet of curiosities as Jude interviews Annabelle Hirsch, the author of A History of Women in 101 Objects – now a remarkable audiobook involving 101 women readers – that takes us through the fascinating, too-often-overlooked, manifold histories of women via the stories of objects that changed the world. We’ll be joined by Anita Rani, Martha Wainwright and Salena Godden to perform special readings from the book. Expect joy, intrigue and laughter – and history like you’ve never heard it before.

This event will be BSL interpreted. Audiences can move around, make noise and leave the room, and access our Quiet Space.
