Akeela Ahmed and the Revd Michaela Youngson
The Women of the World Festival welcomed young women to the Southbank Centre in London to lead workshops on their chosen topics:
- Making Waves, Building Bridges not Walls: in a turbulent world, is a woman’s approach different from a man’s?
- Faith and Feminism: solidarity, intersections and uniqueness
- The Divine or Sacred Feminine
- Motherhood, Feminism & Faith – how does this compute?
- Can’t find a woman speaker? Here’s a list!
- Women at work – dealing with everyday sexism in the workplace
