This weekend is the annual WOW (Women of the World) Festival at the Southbank in London and Kathy will be on stage on Saturday afternoon.
The festival has been running since 2010 and is focused on “celebrating women and girls, and taking a frank look at the obstacles they face, have taken place across the globe.” It also has a goal: “Challenge the belief that gender equality has already been achieved.”
Kathy will be interviewed by WOW founder Jude Kelly on stage at 3.30pm. The blurb is below and you’re interested in attending, you can buy tickets at the WOW website.
