    Jennifer Weiss-Wolf is a leading activist against the Tampon Tax and and vice president for development at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law. She spearheaded the first US "No Tax on Tampons" change.org petition with Cosmopolitan, which currently has over 63,000 signatures.

    Alison Nakamura Netter is a senior leader at the Zana Africa Foundation, which supports adolescent girls in Kenya to stay in school by delivering sanitary pads and reproductive health education. She has also worked on ending sex trafficking in Cambodia with the Somaly Mam Foundation.

    Kiran Gandhi is the renowned free-bleeding runner of the 2015 London Marathon, who ignited a firestorm of global online dialogue around menstrual stigma. She also used to play the drums for M.I.A. and has an MBA from Harvard.
