Naomi Wolf @ WOW Festival.

From Wednesday March 6 to Sunday March 10, the Southbank Centre‘s annual WOW Festival (that’s Women of the World, for those who don’t know) will be featuring  a diverse programme of performances, discussions and events around and celebrating women globally.

But because the 21st century marks a distinct shift away from a dichotomous conception of gender and sexuality, aqnb is most excited about a day in conversation with author and social critic Naomi Wolf, and others, questioning, ‘What does it mean to be a woman? What does it mean to be man?’ at the Looking the Part talk at Royal Festival Hall, Sunday March 10.  It’s a highly topical question in feminism today and with artists like Mykki Blanco and Angel Haze challenging those very definitions, it’s one worth exploring further. See the Southbank Centre website for more events and information.**
