International Women's Day in South Bank
South Bank has had a wealth of women grace the river front over the years, with some women even constructing one of the very bridges, Waterloo Bridge, that we use every day to explore the wonderful world of South Bank. In 2018, the year which celebrated the centenary of the start of women’s suffrage, we’ve been lucky to have had inspirational females across our spectrum of entertainment offerings including: Sophie Okonendo and Cate Blanchett in powerful pioneering roles at the National Theatre, the effervescent Caitlin Moran and Sue Perkins at the Southbank Centre in addition to phenomenal UK exclusive in conversation event with FLOTUS Michelle Obama and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
With International Women’s day 2019 on the 8th March, South Bank’s offerings are back with a bang in order to celebrate the great women we have in our midst. From a ninth WOW festival to Florence Nightingale challenging gender roles, there is something to inspire everyone in South Bank this weekend.
