This week saw International Womens Day. This weekend in celebration of all things female events are being hosted all over the capital.
South of the river WOW (Women of the World) festival at the Southbank Centre focuses on womens history, as well as on campaigning for continued gender equality through talking, educating and mentoring (with mentors including Cherie Blair!), as well as comedy and music.
Todays speakers include Mary Portas, Bianca Jagger and Dawn Porter.

Those of you who may be too hungover or lazy to get on the tube can head down to Spitalfields today to catch the International Womens Fair, where there will be the usual stalls, as well as live music, WW2 themed ballroom dancing, international food, and, if you hurry, you can catch a tour (a free tour!) of the Woman’s Library.
