WOW – Women Of The World
Gender equality in the Finnish manner is one of the greatest success products Finland has achieved in the course of its independence. Gender equality, in turn, has facilitated the creation of the success product known as Finland – a free country characterized by high education standards and innovation.
Originating in England, WOW is an international series of events and a network Finland has joined. This feminist cultural event will highlight the capacity and creativity of Finnish women and girls. Together we shall praise their diversity, educational achievements, opinions and experiences and celebrate the story of the resilient Finnish female, with our eyes confidently on the future.
As a run-up to the main event, to be held at Tampere Hall on International Women’s Day (8 March 2017), a process was launched as early as autumn 2015 to gather together women and girls of different kinds.
