WOW in Regional Queensland
2021 is seeing the return of WOW (Women of the World) to Australia with several festivals throughout regional Queensland. The program hosts inspirational women such as the Hon. Quentin Bryce, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner June Oscar and Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young. The regional setting has inspired the 2021 festival topic: the achievements of women in remote areas and gender barriers. The festival will take place in Charleville (4 to 5 June), Longreach (2 to 3 July), Cairns (6 to 7 August) and Logan (8 to 9 October). WOW has become a global movement to inspire women and girls to fight against inequality and injustices.
