Thanks for a great year!

This year's Women Galore festival was our biggest yet and we are so grateful to all of the participants and attendees. 

See you in 2019!

Planning for next year's festival will begin at the end of this year. 



A Month of Our Own 

Women Galore is a month-long cultural festival that celebrates feminist voices. Founded in 2016 by Lauren Smart and The Wild Detectives, the festival takes place throughout the city of Dallas with events that spotlight women writers, artists, musicians, and professionals. If you've been looking for a place to delve into challenging topics one day and dance away your troubles the next, nourish your feminist soul at Women Galore.

The Wild Detectives


The home base for Women Galore is a bookstore-bar-venue in the Dallas neighborhood of Oak Cliff. The shop is the result of 10 years of friendship of two Spanish civil engineers, Javier García del Moral and Paco Vique. They always wished for a space that could mix two of their passions: books and booze. After a lot of enthusiastic talk over the years they were reckless enough to make that conversation actually happen and so The Wild Detectives opened its doors for the first time on the last day of February, 2014.
