Earlier this week saw International Women’s Day being celebrated and embraced across the country, around the world and of course, in Hull. The day, which celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women everywhere also serves as a call to action for people everywhere to work together to accelerate equality and gender parity.
This weekend sees a range of activities and shows taking place across Hull as part of the WOW (Women of the World) festival. Since it’s founding back in 2010 at Southbank Centre, London, the movement has seen festivals hosted across five continents.
This year sees our own City of Culture join the rapidly expanding global movement which is based on the idea that an equal world is a better world for all of us. WOW is a celebration not only of women and girls but of equality in all its forms.
