Ripping up the rule book for women over 50.

Intentional about harnessing the vibrancy and vibe of the tribe treading this pathway with us.

Setting out to inspire the next generations and respecting those who have gone before.

Starting as a show, we believe it’s a movement.
A cause. A mindset. A space.

It seems that the narrative is that we, as women over 50, start to disappear. Yet, ironically for many of us at this time in our lives, we have more energy, more experience, more light and life.  

At a time when the UN predicts that it will take 300 years to reach gender equality, we cannot take the foot off the pedal.

As we enter later chapters in our lives we run a risk of heading backwards, not least while this generation of accomplished women arguably ‘disappear.’ We need to - and judging by the feedback of our This Age tribe - want to remain visible.

We have spending power, insight, experience, energy - and yet at 'this age' are so overlooked.

There is now a lot of wonderful insight and focus about living with the menopause, which is fantastic, but with 'This Age' we plan to go so much further.

We're creating a tribe/a community globally. Our tribe is telling us that women want to own and be intentional about this vital chapter in their lives.  

They want to see their true lives reflected honestly. We will be investing in growing this tribe to reach and inspire more and more women who are either excited about what this new path brings… or conversely, feel unseen, misunderstood and/or mis-represented.  

This is also the time when we must inspire the next generations of women. And still recognise what’s gone before us.

Our first guests embody this mindset.  

  • Hy Money - the first ever female football photographer who went on to be the first ever female photographer at Wimbledon.
  • Rowan Pelling, the editor of the 1990s magazine- The Erotic Review who has just launched a new magazine.
  • Yvonne Thompson, CBE - founding member of Choice Radio, president of the European Federation of Black Women Business Owners, and founder of Wintrade (Women in Trade).  

We ask our guests 4 main questions:

  1. Tell us about one key area where you have ripped up the rule book in your career?

  2. And what in particular have you ripped since the age of 50? What led you to decide you needed to rip it up?

  3. And more excitingly - what will you rip up next?

  4. What top tips can you share that helps lift you when you are not “feeling it”?

Join us, join our tribe. Because This Age Matters.
