The Oxford International Women’s Festival exists to celebrate women’s achievements and solidarity and to highlight local, national and international issues. It is organised by local women to reflect a wide range of backgrounds and experiences – and has played a significant part in the community for over a quarter of a century.

The meeting is open to anyone, so if you would like to get involved, please come along!
