Women of the World

Women of the World: Celebrating the Women of the Commonwealth was a unique celebration of the achievements of girls and women from across Queensland and the Commonwealth.

Women of the World

Using the spirit of celebration and positivity, Women of the World: Celebrating the Women of the Commonwealth took a frank look at why gender inequality is still with us, and debated solutions together.

Founded by Jude Kelly CBE at London’s Southbank Centre in 2010, Women of the World explores the challenges and barriers for women and girls on subjects from the role of men in achieving gender equality, women in revolution, sport, sex, economics, politics, the arts, health, pop culture, education and everything in between.

Packed with exhibitions, events, performances, gigs, free music, markets and workshops, this lively and serious festival had something for everyone.
