Transition, like aging, is inevitable. And this shift has been over a year in the making. Welcome to The Fold! 

The Fold is a digital destination for the woman of an "uncertain age" that will focus on the contributions, importance, and value of being a feminist female. Founded and edited by Amanda Carter Gomes in collaboration with a group of exemplary women writers and creatives, The Fold will highlight the ageless individuals who are ever evolving, open to change, and confident to inspire revolution at any age. The Fold will cover Arts & Culture, Relationships, Wellness, Motherhood, Money, Personal Style, and Politics - all the issues relevant to being an informed woman in today's society. 

I am very proud of the work I did at Clementine Daily and will forever be grateful for that space. But for some time I have wanted more. More depth, more conversations, more transparency and quite simply: more women. Women who have lived full lives, who are seasoned in their experience and yet open and excited for what is to come. Women who realize that life does not end when you turn 30, no - in fact, they know it is when many are just getting warmed up.  

In an industry that holds youth on a pedestal, I wanted to create a site that values the years, the lessons learned, heartaches earned and the glorious experiences that have brought us to this moment. To dispel the myth and hopefully dissolve expectations about what it looks like to be a woman at any age. To contradict the thinking that we become obsolete as we age, because it is now, right now at 40, when I am truly finding my voice. 

I have gathered a magnificent group of women, all experts in their individual fields, who will be contributing here monthly. We created The Fold because women like us have something to say. Please be patient as we iron out the kinks and get a bit of a slow start, but do check back daily, as we will be consistently adding more content.

I am so grateful you are here.
