Starting from 1 March, in the lead-up to International Women’s Day, we hosted a series of activities as Women of the World Week 2021. Through digital releases of live and pre-recorded content and selected physical events, we explored the power of arts and culture to contribute positively to gender advocacy. Working closely with WOW Foundation UK, and curators, partners, grantees in Nepal, although virtual, WOW Week encompassed the breadth of our past physical Festivals. It also functioned as a follow-up to the conversations we started through WOW Virtual (2020) and the last physical edition in Janakpur, WOW Madhesh.
WOW Week used the power of arts and culture, amplified by digital platforms, to reach stakeholders of gender equality with important conversations, stimulating performances, engaging stories and meaningful connections. Throughout the week, we explored intersectional issues, offer mentoring and capacity-building opportunities and provided a creative platform for women/girls and gender minorities to influence public opinions and actions.
