Exclusively built around real womxn and real stories, MDWMN is grounded in creative expression and the unapologetic celebration of unfiltered realities.
Founder & Editor-in-Chief
Nikki Dicunto built MADWOMAN (MDWMN), from the ground up, after publicly sharing her own battle with bulimia as a safe space and supportive platform.
As a registered nurse working in mental health Nikki had all the knowledge and skills to confront her eating disorder, however, she continued to struggle in silence not fitting the stereotypical mold. After years of relapsing, her strength to share her story brought an overwhelming sense of support.
The support became pivotal in her journey towards healing and self-love as she no longer felt alone in her battle towards recovery. Her experience inspired her to create MDWMN, where she was able to connect with other like-minded womxn and dive into her own creative expression creating art with social impact through film photography.
