Hello and a warm welcome to Midlife Slices, where we’re on a mission to empower midlife women to control the narrative of their own lives.
If you’re a midlife woman and you’re reading this, you’d be well aware that as a group, midlife women are largely neglected by a mainstream media turbo-powered by ageism and sexism.
So we saw an opportunity to build and facilitate an inclusive, diverse, global community of intelligent, curious, digitally-savvy women 40-55+, through which we could both advocate for – and normalise – aging and all the mess, beauty, and power that comes with it.
We’re here to champion your voice by leading conversations committed to the midlife experience. We promise to ‘show up’ on topics, causes, and cultural moments that really matter to you.
Our values are:
Authenticity: Readers can count on us to provide trustworthy and responsible journalism. Like life, we aren’t perfect! We promise to ‘keep it real’ and always be upfront and honest with ourselves and our readers.
Curiosity: We are innately curious, learning and discovering, and seeking meaning in the world around us. We are always open to new ideas and points of view, and commit to sharing those learnings with our readers.
Connection: We value connection as the most vital tool for good mental health in a fast-paced global, digital landscape. So we strive to make, nurture, and share meaningful human connections.
Inclusivity: as a community we are open-minded and respectful of all contributors and readers/subscribers regardless of age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, physicality, or neurodiversity.
As Founder and Editor, I am driven by a desire to connect deeply with – and tell the stories of – other midlife women.
My vision for Midlife Slices is that it is authentic, and compelling, and healing; an evolution of the emotional kind. For myself, of course, but hopefully for others, too.
My dream is for Midlife Slices to become a growing into, a relinquishing of oneself to the tide of, midlife, one that I am realising has the potential to become the greatest, most awe-inspiring period of my life.
Time flies! Join me!
