In the week of International Women’s Day, join us for a special event as three of the country’s most in-demand speakers and writers come to Henley for a frank, funny and fierce look at what it means to be a woman in 2019.
Journalist Jessica Jonzen (The Home Page, The Sunday Times) is joined in the stunning setting of the River & Rowing Museum by Daisy Buchanan, Helen Lederer and Nikita Gill to discuss everything from #MeToo and period poverty to female friendship and the women that inspire them.
Award-winning journalist Daisy returns to Henley the week her second book ‘Sisterhood: A Love Letter To The Women Who Have Shaped Me’ is published. The much-anticipated follow-up to ‘How To Be A Grown Up’, it celebrates the ways in which women connect with each other. Grazia’s agony aunt turned reality TV expert, Daisy also hosts the brilliant ‘You’re Booked’ podcast and is a regular guest on Radio 4, Sky News and Good Morning Britain.

Her most recent book ‘Losing It’ was nominated for the Wodehouse Prize. She has recently launched the Comedy Women in Print Prize, giving female comedy writing the recognition it deserves, from unpublished authors to established writerswhich includes a publishing deal for the winner: https://www.comedywomeninprint.co.uk/

Her latest book ‘Fierce Fairytales’ reimagines classic fairytales as empowering messages for adult women.
