Our Mission

WB40 - Woman Beyond Forty is an online publication for women who want to support other women, and help each other to rise. We are intent on spreading a message of sisterhood, encouraging self love and self care. Our articles range from topics such as feminism, sex, dating and relationships, books, travel, beauty, food and indulgence. Anything that appeals to us as women! We have an amazing group of contributors and writers, both for the magazine and on our popular Podcast. We are about inclusion and diversity, and our aim is to always be a strong community of women, allowing diverse voices to be heard, and interesting stories and opinions to be shared in a safe and friendly environment.

How We Work

What our readers tell us consistently is that they want positivity, and they want to be part of a community that builds women up. Sure, they might want to make changes in their lives, but those changes are ones they want to make for themselves – not to please everyone else. We are passionate about working with partners, brands and businesses that have the same ethos.We want to build strong, solid and respectful brand partnerships, where the relationship is positive and mutually beneficial. We are in this for the long haul not instant gratification. We are determined to create a movement of women who live the life they want to live: a life of joy, indulgence and kicking serious goals. And we really want to offer these women products and services to help them indulge. We are experienced industry professionals and we get to know the brands we work with and come up with targeted and different campaigns that work.
