Gabby Jahanshahi-Edlin is the Founder and former-CEO of Bloody Good Period.
Gabby is well-known for founding Bloody Good Period, a charity that has created a movement for menstrual equity, inspiring the nation to think differently about periods.
After volunteering in a refuge, Gabby noticed that period products were not one of the items being provided to refugees. She posted on Facebook for help and she was overwhelmed by the support. Gabby saw a bigger opportunity to help people that menstruate in getting access to the products, support and education they need. She set up a charity with a bold brand and a clear mission to work with the government, employers and the public to help solve this problem.
In this episode Gabby chats candidly about periods, creating a social movement and removing the stigma of periods, building one of the most unique charities from the ground up, and her journey stepping back as CEO.
