WOW – WOMEN ON WEDNESDAYS
_ Main Venue _
WOW – Women on Wednesdays, is a brand new night showcasing the best of Ireland’s female artists, launching Wednesday July 19th at Whelan’s.
The festival scene leaves much to be desired as a platform for women.
Longitude had 25% female acts, Electric Picnic 33%, and Forbidden Fruit a mere 16%! Despite making up 50% of the global population, the dire underrepresentation of women, be it in politics, boardrooms or the arts, continues to serve as the status quo.
Recognising the opportunity to promote, support and celebrate the wealth of talented women out there, WOW’s mission is to provide a much needed platform for women artists and an entertaining, belter of a night for audiences.
In the spirit of female solidarity – Global North and Global South – all proceeds raised from WOW ticket sales will support Aidlink’s girls’ education projects in Kenya, tackling female genital mutilation (FGM), child marriage and gender inequality.
Join us at Whelan’s, Wednesday July 19th, 7pm – Late
All audiences welcome! (Over 18s)

What is Aidlink?
Founded in Dublin in 1982, Aidlink is an Irish Charity (CHY 9078) working to improve the lives of people living in poverty in Africa. We do this by strengthening local organisations, enabling healthy and fulfilling lives and developing sustainable communities with the capacity, skills and knowledge to achieve change for themselves. Working in Kenya, Uganda and Ghana, our projects include building wells, constructing primary school sanitation facilities and training farmers and communities, all with a special focus on the rights and empowerment of women and girls. www.aidlink.ie
Where does the money go?
Aidlink’s primary school programme in Kenya is a gendered intervention which aims to make school a happier, healthier and safer place for all children, but most especially for girls. Working with our local partner The Girl Child Network, we work to achieve “girl-friendly” primary schools, which entails implementing better sanitation facilities, distributing sanitary pads, establishing and training child rights clubs and women’s groups, and providing gender sensitive training to parents and staff.
