Festival of The Girl is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to inspire and educate girls aged 7 - 11 years and support adults to raise girls in a less stereotyped way.

Festival of The Girl takes place in October in celebration of International Day of The Girl. This interactive event gives girls access to an incredible range of speakers, workshops and activities that explore key topics such as careers, body positivity and mental health.

This year Festival of The Girl is ONLINE. 


Our vision was to encourage more girls and their families to celebrate International Day of The Girl on Sunday 11th October. We have done this by sharing content that inspires girls and adults through an engaging and exciting virtual festival throughout October.

Festival of The Girl 2019

- Future Opportunities

We were thrilled to host our hugely successful inaugural festival on Saturday 5th October, 2019 in Tower Hamlets, celebrating all the incredible girls and boys who came and took part. With workshops, interactive stalls, Q&A’s and plenty of inspiring role models we shaped our Festival around the theme, Future Opportunities.

Here's a sneak peek into the day:

Never miss a moment

“It’s simple, you can’t be what you can’t see.  So let’s surround our girls with inspiring role models and empower them to confidently create a future of equal opportunity, a future where a woman’s worth is not judged by her appearance, a future where they feel safe. 

The future is hers.”

- Abi Wright, Festival of The Girl co-founder
