About us



We have had many people asking us about Kinwomen, where it came from and what it is all about.

Penny, Amanda and Kelley chat on this video about the network and its beginnings.

A huge thankyou to Gaylene Galardi who edited and filmed the piece and also the music is by Sufjan Stevens called ‘Chicago’.
