Top 5 Sisters to See This Weekend at WOW Fest 2022 (Besides &SISTERS!)
In celebration of International Women's Day 2022, we are delighted to be attending WOW London 2022 Festival. As a feminist brand we could not be prouder to have been selected to attend WOW festival in the Southbank’s marketplace area. Here’s our top list of unmissable events...
What is WOW festival?
Founded in 2010, WOW or Women of the World Festival is recognised as the biggest World Wide festival to celebrate women, girls & non-binary people. The festival aims to "change attitudes, bring communities together and provide a unique space for people to work together towards gender equality within their own communities"- and its also a lot of fun!
We're thrilled that &SISTERS has been selected as one of their favourite feminist brands to feature in WOW Festival's exclusive marketplace alongside the likes of the Feminist Library, the Women's Equality Party & the Fawcett Society. Our Sisterhood was founded in protest of the toxicity of our period products and language that made periods feel unnatural and unhygienic, so we are proud to be partnering with so many inspiring sisters making real changes wherever they go. This is truly the festival to #BreakTheBias.
