Founder & Editor-in-Chief

Nikki Dicunto 

Nikki built MADWOMAN (MDWMN), from the ground up, after publicly sharing her own lived experience as a safe space and supportive platform for womxn. 

As a health care professional, with experience in mental health and social justice,  Nikki had the tools to overcome her adversities - however, she continued to struggle in silence. After years of relapsing, her strength to share her story brought an overwhelming sense of community, support, and healing. 

 

The community became pivotal in her ability to find self-acceptance and compassion in her journey, no longer feeling alone in her truth. Her experience inspired her to create MDWMN to connect womxn from around the globe and provide a platform where their voices can be amplified and heard.
