PrettyGreen helps Scarlett Curtis and Audible host the first ever Women’s event at male-only members’ club for IWD

Reposted from March 8th, 2019: It’s International Women’s Day today and PrettyGreen celebrated a little early this year, with the launch event of Scarlett Curtis’ new Audible Original podcase, To The Woman.  To launch this hotly anticipated podcast series, we decided to make history with the first solely female-led event hosted at the men’s only members club, and what a night it was!

Hosted by “the voice of Gen Z feminism” (Evening Standard, 2018) and Sunday Times best-seller Scarlett CurtisAudible’s Spoken Worlds: To The Woman welcomed an exceptional panel of remarkable women from the podcast series including June SarpongLisa Luxx and Sangeeta Pillai. Guests were treated to an exclusive first listen of letters which have been written and narrated for Audible’s To The Woman podcast. The evening concluded with a panel discussion, audience Q&A and a chance for attendees to write and share their own letters to the women they’re thankful for. In attendance were also Scarlett’s parents, Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Comic Relieft) and Emma Freud (Broadcaster).

All proceeds from ticket sales for Spoken Worlds Presents: To The Woman will be donated to Bloody Good Period which works to help end period poverty in the UK.

Co-created by Scarlett Curtis and multi-award-winning documentary maker Hana Walker-Brown To The Woman, celebrates exceptional women of the world through a series of letters to mothers, life-long friends and the women we are yet to meet. The series is launching exclusively today on Audible on International Women’s Day (8th March 2019).

Each episode begins with a prompt: “To the woman …” followed by five themes –“To the woman that raised me,” “To the woman who chose me,” “To the woman that changed me,” “To the woman that I am,” “To the women still to come.” What begins as a simple prompt becomes a larger narrative of love, friendship and a celebration of women. Contributors include Dolly AldertonJuno DawsonJune SarpongGemma Cairney and Suki Waterhouse amongst others.

The event and series has so far been featured in Financial Times, Guardian, Stylist, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Grazia, Evening Standard to name a few, with plenty more still to come!

As an agency that has an 80% female board and mainly female leadership team, it’s events like these that break down barriers and set new precedents for women and gender equality, that we take great pride in creating, hosting and executing. As you can see it was a fantastic night and we look forward to working on more amazing events like this in the future.
