From professors to pop stars: what happened in Rajshahi

In July 2018 we held WOW Dhaka: Rajshahi Chapter.  The event was organised by the British Council, South Bank Centre and Centre for Communication and Development (CCD Bangladesh). 

WOW Chapters are community events, held in the run up to a WOW festival.  The events provide a platform to celebrate women and girls and explore the obstacles which prevent them from achieving their full potential.  In turn, they help to inform the design of the upcoming WOW festival.  

Speakers and performers at Rajshahi included professors, activists, politicians, social entrepreneurs, athletes, female pilots and even pop stars, with popular singer Moumita Tasrin Nodi ending the programme with a live performance.  See the highlights in our video.
