Creating a Space for the Mana Wahine

I love this picture of Michelle Obama because it represents our dinner group of women, the mana wahine. We found each other in this program, stick together, support each other, drink together, worry together, write together, celebrate together.

This cohort one, created by a man, does not take into account the unique needs of women to define cohort as a support system. I know some of them have been asking for something, but I’m going to do the proactive thing and actually create a google folder to hold our personal folders where we can place our dissertation writing and we can seek feedback from each other.

Late, maybe, but crucial now that we are at the birthing stage. If I build it, will they come? Is it ok to just open it up to our group of women?

I need to put what I have up first as a way to create the safe space. Lele.
