Sophene Avedissian, founder and executive director of Equal Period, has always been extremely passionate about women's rights and advancing gender equality. After learning about period poverty, Sophene knew she had to do something to help eradicate period poverty and provide all menstruators with appropriate access to menstrual care products. At the age of twelve, Sophene had an idea to start an organization with the mission of ending period poverty. After many challenges and struggles, Equal Period finally started to grow and through collaboration with like-minded others, was able to begin supporting many menstruators in need.
