Wowed by WOW

on Mon 11 Mar 2013

Last weekend deep:black attended the WOW festival at the Southbank Centre in celebration of International Womens Day.

On the agenda on Saturday morning was an inspirational series of talks called the Keys to the Castle hosted by festival director Jude Kelly.

Speakers included space scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock on The Thinking Woman’s Guide to the Universe: a journey from the familiar to the unknown in one easy step,  Ahdaf Soueif on the function of women in Egypt’s revolution,  Ruby Wax on why you need your brains and Angelique Kidjo on the importance of education for women in Africa.

We came away feeling really enriched and inspired.
