What is a WOW Bite?

WOW Bites are short talks and stories, and sometimes performances, readings, and soapbox moments, on a very wide range of subjects from the serious to the very frivolous. They are delivered by all sorts of women, some very famous and some you’ll have never heard of, but all have amazing stories.
