Since then, WOW Foundation has organized festivals and events in more than 30 cities across six continents, attracting 5 million people and featuring speakers such as Angela Davis, Malala Yousafzai and Annie Lennox.
WOW Athens, presented in Greece in cooperation with the British Council, will include speeches by guests from Greece and abroad, discussions, workshops, mentoring sessions, educational programs, concerts, etc., in a major celebration aimed at empowering cis or trans women and girls to tackle the barriers and inequalities they encounter on a daily basis.
