Glaucia Martin-Porath has and she’s bringing that utopian vision to life with Women’s Plaza, a shared workspace that offers freelancers, remote workers and mamaprenuers daycare, catered meals, networking — even massage and yoga. “We should have a place were women can go to work, be close to their children and be supported,” says Martin-Porath. A native of Brazil, Martin-Porath is still working on securing the space, but is looking at a site in Northeast that’s freeway accessible. She’ll offer private offices and smaller cubicle-type spaces for rent. She expects to open Women’s Plaza by the end of 2015. Sign us up. — Denise Castañon
