​​
WOJO, launched in November 2017, celebrates and explores the  lives and interests of grown up women.

Intelligent and visually exciting, WOJO investigates the female gaze and the rich diversity of the female voice.

Privileging the experience of women whose interests and capacities are wide-ranging and deep, yet are sometimes excluded from popular media.

With regular articles about life, art, love, food and the environment as well as style, interviews  and new writing, WOJO is the online magazine for engaged and curious women everywhere.
 
Each issue of WOJO will be themed by its main feature;  in this issue, we're talking about Death and Bereavement; in the next we'll be discussing Good Girls and Sluts.
