What women over 40
are talking about now


A closed, confidential, forum for women over 40 with a bent toward the literary, witty, and feminist.


Find support and inspiration on topics from sex and skincare to surviving the empty nest in a realm private from our everyday lives of work and family.


This is a place where you can feel comfortable having candid, lively, and intimate conversations. We all appreciate a good joke, a shoulder to cry on, and real talk.


Join us to find solace and laugh out loud, and revel in your new phase of life.

Woolfers, all women over 40, share a certain sensibility — a sense of humor, an appreciation of art and culture and literature, a desire to be candid, kind, self-reflective, and thoughtful — while also coming from a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives.

We post articles, and pictures, and stories, ask each other for advice (we even have an anonymous feature), and share information on everything from book and lube recommendations to advice on eldercare, online dating, and where to buy the best bra.

Our Facebook groups are Closed but not Secret, which means you can find them easily by searching Facebook. Membership is upon request.

Subject Groups

The subject groups are for particular topics that Woolfers want to discuss but which we feel might clog up the main group too much:
