The ‘WFWP Speech Contest for Young Women in the UK’ began in 2015 as a project to expand our educational activities. WFWP wanted to give young women an opportunity to speak in public about their opinions, beliefs and values. The contest enables women (aged between 18 and 39) to demonstrate their eloquence, ability to grasp relevant content and to persevere with dedication from the initial application to the final speech on a stage before a live audience. We believe that this process will be an educational and rewarding experience for those that choose to take part.

I had the immense pleasure and privilege of attending the 2017 WFWP EU Conference in Portugal. No words can describe the soul-enriching gratitude I feel for having been able to experience such a conference, as I was also sponsored by the WFWP in London due to winning the 2017 Speech Contest about ‘Women’s Issues in Today’s Society’.
