And our partners

  • Engender Health for their support and for hosting an event.
  • Kota for hosting a google hangout.

  • Miss Heard Magazine for sharing real girls' stories. In 2013, Lindsey Turnbull founded MissHeard Magazine in order to create a space for teens to learn, share and connect. Lindsey spent four years in college as a mentor to teen girls in nearby middle schools. Traditional teen magazines seemed to gloss over real issues girls face every day. These magazines lacked spaces for teens to share their experiences.

  • Party With Consent for hosting an online activity for men and boys.
  • Ruby Cup for donating menstrual cups to our campaign launch, and to girls in Kenya for every one that is bought.
