Grown-up women are amazing - a fact we're celebrating!
Here at woman&home we recognise that midlife women are, finally, having their moment.
Which is why we launched our 50 Over 50 Awards in partnership with JD Williams, a fabulous initiative celebrating all those midlife women making a difference.
There are 10 categories in total, covering everything from the UK’s sharpest female business minds to the midlife blogs we love to visit online.
Eight of the ten category shortlists have been revealed to date, and we’ll be revealing the final two shortlists in the coming weeks – so keep checking back. The overall winners will then be revealed in the November issue of Woman & Home.
