Abstract / Synopsis
Bridging the gap between the world of motherhood and the world of academia can seem like a heroic feat. This essay acknowledges and celebrates a community of super women doing this every day. The Math Mamas Facebook group was formed in 2016 and today boasts over five hundred members. It provides its members a platform to commiserate about the challenges and celebrate the wins, big or small, whichever is appropriate whenever.
