Are you a budding young gender equality champion? Do you think we should all have the same opportunities in life? If so, don’t miss this session!
Feminism isn’t just for teenagers and grown ups - WOW Under 10’s Feminist Corners are an important part of WOW festivals across the globe. Join other young people your age to explore what equality means and discover what life is like for girls and non-binary young people across the world.
In this fun session, girls, boys and non-binary young people aged 7 to 10-years old will explore equality in the playground and at home, try out some creative tasks and get tips on how to start their very own campaign.
This session is for all young people, aged 7 to 10-years-old.
This workshop will take place as a Zoom Webinar, and young people can either do the session on their own or along with an adult.
This event is part of WOW UK Festival 2022, our week-long digital programme of groundbreaking In Conversations and interactive workshops.
For this year’s festival, we are offering audiences the chance to pay what they can, with tickets for events starting from £1. If you’re able to pay a higher ticket price, your contribution will include a donation to help WOW continue its work fighting for gender equality all year-round.
WOW London’s in person festival takes place at Southbank Centre from 11-13 March. Check out the line-up here.
