Southbank Centre’s WOW festival

wow festOn 10 March, I took part in a panel discussion about women’s rights in the Arab region at the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World festival. The festival takes place every year, and includes a massive range of events celebrating, discussing, and mobilising on issues affecting women and girls.

My event – with Dame Ann Leslie, Abir Awad, and Samar Samir Mezghanni – looked at the liberation experienced by women during the Arab Spring, and whether that was short lived. It was an interesting discussion (a few photographs of the event are here). It was a great festival to be a part of and, if you’ve never been, I thoroughly recommend attending next year.
