The Duchess of Cornwall hosted a reception to celebrate the achievements of outstanding women this week.

The guest list at the Clarence House event included a number of leading women from the media, led by the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour presenter Jenni Murray, and featured comic Ruby Wax, author Kathy Lette and human rights campaigner Bianca Jagger.

The event was held in support of the Women of the World (WOW) festival at London’s Southbank Centre next week where a host of famous female artists from Annie Lennox to Sinead O'Connor will perform. Other events will feature comediennes, poets, businesswomen and entrepreneurs.

Guest Bianca Jagger stressed the importance of the WOW festival and the event hosted by The Duchess.

She said: “In the 21st Century women have not been able to achieve gender equality, therefore every opportunity we have to highlight the role of women and stand up for women’s rights, I take that opportunity.”

Speaking about The Duchess, she added: “I think she is a woman who really understands the role of women. She’s always been very supportive about women’s causes.”
