WOW – This Weekend, Mother’s Day And If I Should Have A Daughter…

It’s WOW time again…

wow

Sunday is International Women’s Day and the WOW festival is one of the most exciting events inspired by the global celebration. WOW was created to celebrate the achievements of women and girls, and looks at the obstacles they face across the world.

Held at the South Bank Centre until 8th March, highlights include the ‘I’mPOSSIBLE’ panel debate about the success, achievement and leadership of women of colour with Angie LeMar and ‘MOBO Celebrates Women of the World,’ a look at the leading female champions of the music industry, with two time nominee Rebecca Ferguson. Events are free to attend, check out the timetable here.

If I should have a daughter…

tedThere is nothing more sacred than the relationship between a mother and daughter, and spoken word poet Sarah Kay who raised two standing ovations when she performed this piece at TED in 2011, is still one of our favourite talks ever.

We challenge you not to be moved!

 

Mother,

mummy cufddle

Of all the words I could choose, there aren’t quite enough to say,

how much you are appreciated, how you inspire me in many ways.

In the strength you encompass and the wisdom that you hold,

your timeless elegance and beauty and compassion to others you show.

To a wonderful woman enjoy your special day,

you deserve so many blessings much love to you happy birthday.

Thanks to Natreema Asafu-Adjaye for the verse which sits inside this card designed for mum’s birthday.
