About Us

Future Women was born out of the desire to build a magazine brand for women in the digital age. Former magazine editor Helen McCabe was creating the company when the #MeToo movement gained momentum in late 2017, and Future Women quickly became a deeply emotional investment in the movement. 

It is now more than a destination to inspire women in their own lives, but a safe space to motivate women as we push for a gender equal world.

Gidget Foundation Australia

Gidget Foundation Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides programs to support the emotional wellbeing of expectant and new parents.

Nearly 1 in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers will experience perinatal depression and anxiety – a condition that is often hidden and not fully understood. It impacts around 100,000 Australians each year, and suicide is the leading cause of maternal death. Nearly 50% of all parents experience adjustment disorders.

Gidget Foundation Australia is supported by the generosity of philanthropic individuals and business, the NSW Government as well as events.
