Empowering women and girls is one of the strands of the British Council's Arts programme. We work with partners to provide women and girls with the opportunities to challenge and shift attitudes that perpetuate gender inequality through highlighting success stories, supporting the economic empowerment and skills development, and expanding links and networks with the UK.

For example, our partnership with the Southbank Centre on the Women of the World Festival (WOW) celebrates women and girls and their achievements, while asking what more we need to do to achieve equality. Learn more about the WOW editions and other projects that focus on women and girls' empowerment.
