The idea for Mathilde was born 

out of years of conversations between

like-minded women about the need

for a feminist platform that would

advance  thoughtful and honest enquiry into,

and commentary on,

developing cultural trends, 

discerning which ones 

advance women's betterment,

and which detract from it.

We strongly believe it needed

to be a platform unencumbered

by any pressure 

to keep to the political narrative. 

We felt it was time create a place 

in the marketplace of ideas, 

for women to explore

and seek to understand

what the repercussions

of seemingly unrelated events

might have on their role in society,

and how it perceives them.

We are not intent on the subject of Woman

to the exclusion of all else,

and champion, first and foremost,

the commitment to consider questions

critically, and people compassionately-

so as to be able to address

broader cultural considerations 

from a  position empowered with

knowledge and wisdom.

Patience with political adversaries, 

and confidence in where we stand,

will, we believe, best enable women

to make the most positive impact,

and bring about the flourishing,

of individuals and societies.

To that end, we seek to be

a magazine that values 

truth above dogma,

freedom of inquiry above groupthink,

virtue above virtue signalling,

and resilience above victimhood.

And in defiance of Cancel Culture,

we 'hold fast' to those legacies of Western Culture

that enrich and progress our human story.

We are reclaimed feminism

seeking an alternative path towards progress.

We look back to the lessons of our history, 

rooted in the Judaeo-Christian tradition, 

and believe the secret weapon is

speaking truth,

in love.
