What does underwear have to do with equal opportunities in education? “From age 9 or 10 girls and the boys [in Uganda] are going in very different directions,” says Sarah Jordan, Founder & CEO of B-Corp Certified Y.O.U Underwear. “Without access to undergarments, girls are missing school and I wanted to do something about that.” 

This week on the Girls Who Run the World podcast (available on Apple and Spotify), Sarah shares what inspired her to start Y.O.U Underwear, and how addressing period poverty can change lives for young women everywhere.
