Harper’s Bazaar’s International Women’s Day event returns for 2022
Lydia Slater: “We are incredibly proud of our heritage championing women’s rights.”

Held on Wednesday 9 March 2022 at the Connaught, London, in partnership with Clé de Peau Beauté, Veuve Clicquot and YPO, the event will bring together inspiring women from the worlds of film, fashion, business and technology who are finding creative ways to change society for the better.

For its fourth annual celebration, Harper’s Bazaar says it will host an engaging evening with a champagne reception, dinner and a series of empowering talks. The speaker line-up includes:

  • The two-time Olivier Award-winning actress Ruth Wilson, who will discuss her career on stage and screen, her attraction to playing complex female characters and the importance of telling stories with women at their heart.
  • British fashion entrepreneur Anya Hindmarch, who will discuss harnessing emotion and creativity in running a business, and putting community and sustainability at the core of her commercial strategy.
  • A panel talk featuring three ‘women building the future’: the mathematician Anne-Marie Imafidon, who founded the pioneering social enterprise Stemettes; the Kabul-born entrepreneur Mursal Hedayat, whose app Chatterbox provides training and employment for refugee women; and the artist, financier and entrepreneur Roksana Ciurysek-Gedir. The trio will share insight into how they are drawing on the power of art, science and technology to bring about social progress.

Lydia Slater, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, says: “Harper’s Bazaar has had a long-standing commitment and history of celebrating inspirational women ever since its first issue was published in 1867. We are incredibly proud of our heritage championing women’s rights and we are delighted to be getting together in person to celebrate the modern-day pioneers who strive to break down barriers.”
