About The

Finding 40 Project

Forty. The Big 4-0. We know this is a milestone number, but what does it really mean on a global scale? Finding Forty© is on a mission, both here and abroad, examining what it means to be 40 years old to a diverse set of women. The Finding 40 Project is a unique opportunity to take a concept that is both feared and celebrated in the United States and turn an eye outward to see what this milestone means to others on a global scale. From women who simply hope to make it to 40 to those in desperate need to forget it, The Finding 40 Project tells their stories through photos and text.
