Followed by a fun workshop designing placards which can be made to support your own cause or in response to the talk itself.
All materials will be supplied.

The Audacious Women Festival is your chance to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere. This is more than a women's festival – we celebrate Audacious Women - women who are bold and courageous, who have flaunted convention, taken risks and done audacious acts. Women who move outside their comfort zone, face their inner demons and do what they always wished they dared.
Wherever you are, we’re here to encourage you to do your own audacious act. Break convention. Get outside your comfort zone. Be adventurous. Do a charity parachute jump, throw some bricks through the glass ceiling, or organise a protest march. Anything that will make a positive difference to you or to the world.
