Nadya Okamato

Founder and executive director of PERIOD


Okamato is a social activist currently on sabbatical from Harvard University to spearhead PERIOD: The Menstrual Movement, a global, youth-run nonprofit focused on menstrual equity. She’s a keynote speaker on topics of gender equality, homelessness, and activism — drawing directly from her own personal experiences.

I hope that the [menstrual] movement can be so widespread that it is known as a key component of the general fight for gender equality.
