Clutch is an online magazine and blog network whose stated target audience is "today's young, hip, progressive Black woman".[1] The magazine was started as a print publication in 2002.[2] It is part of Sutton Media.[2] Following a temporary closure the magazine was relaunched as an online-only publication in 2007.[2]

In 2009, digital media consultancy Elemental Interactive made a strategic investment in Clutch. Elemental (a former division of WPP plc's Grey Global Group), was to take an undisclosed stake in Atlanta-based Sutton Media, Clutch's publisher.[3]

Sites on which articles from Clutch are republished include The Grio, a division of NBC News, a daily online news and opinion platform devoted to delivering stories and perspectives that reflect and affect African-American audiences.

Clutch's editorial staff includes Danielle Belton, Yesha Callahan, Britni Danielle, and Jessica Andrews.[4]
