Everyone is invited to join WOW for a night of optimism, determination and laughter.

For one night only in Brighton, join WOW – Women of the World’s Founder and acclaimed theatre director Jude Kelly for a joy-packed evening of optimism, determination and laughter as together we explore our often exasperating and confusing journey towards gender equity. 

There’ll be big ideas, special guests, local heroes of Brighton and tales of incredible women and non-binary people you may never even have heard of before, but who now you’ll never forget! It’ll be an interactive evening of crowdsourced ideas and actions, as together we discuss, rage and celebrate YOUR burning issues and ideas on everything from money to sex, housing to public transport and bringing up boys to ageing.

Expect personal anecdotes, a whistlestop look at the state of play for feminism in your local town and across the world, surprising stories and lots of fun, as Jude takes WOW on the road across the UK this autumn.

This is a celebratory tour in the run up to WOW – Women of the World’s 15th anniversary in 2025, so come and be part of making history with us. 

Grab your friends and family – it's an evening for everyone. If you are a woman or you know a woman, please show up!
