Women over 40 are a powerful force, and it’s time for our stories and wisdom to be shared

 WOMEN’S STORIES MATTER

AND YET…

  • Of the 100 top-grossing films in America in 2018, only 11 featured a woman over 45 in a leading (or co-leading) role. Side note: only 40 of those 100 films featured a female of any age in a leading or co-leading role.

  • Female writers are less likely than male writers to get publishing deals

  • On average books by female authors are priced 45% lower than those by males

  • In the UK 65% of theatre goers are female, yet only 28% of playwrights are women

WHY AM I SHARING THESE STATISTICS?

Because I believe that women’s voices and stories matter, especially those over 40 who are so often left out of our cultural story. I believe that when women see, read or hear stories by other women they can be both inspired and empowered. And, the only way for this to happen is for more women to share their stories, their wisdom and their experiences with the world.

WOMEN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD ONE WORD AT A TIME

ARE YOU READY?

I’m on a mission to help 10,000 women aged 40+ share their story / message / vision with the world and I’d love you to be one of them. Hop over here to see how I can support you and together we can make sure that women’s stories are being heard.

Stories have the power to unite us, to make us feel less alone, to lift us up and inspire us to do things we never imagined. Stories, in every form, are full of magic. Will you share yours?
