What’s in a name?

I was struggling to find a name for the blog.  Ideas that came up like ‘hidden women’ turned out to be phrases or websites commonly in use.  It was when I sat down with the women in the hostel that I started to get somewhere.

I asked them to say in a word or a phrase how they feel about their situation.

Keeley, a 29 year old resident in the hostel, is often coming up with catch phrases.  I knew she was bright and really great with words, but what she sat down and wrote stopped me in my tracks (click on the picture to see it in more detail):

There were themes from Keeley’s work that came up across what the other women wrote.  A feeling of being lost, confused, not knowing if they are coming or going, but wanting to move on.  Their words inspired the name.
