“Throughout history, many women’s achievements have gone unnoticed or unsung. I created the WOW – Women of the World – Festival to celebrate the formidable power of women; to make change happen; to remind us of our history; to draw attention to injustice; to enjoy each other’s company and to encourage men to add their support as we set out to achieve a fairer world.”
- Jude Kelly OBE, WOW Founder and Co-Artistic Director, WOW-Baltimore
