It can be hard to imagine a world where young girls are isolated and forced to sit on cardboard throughout their menstrual cycles because of ancient taboos and a lack of hygiene necessities, but this is exactly what Celeste Mergens stumbled across on a sustainability trip to Kenya. Fast forward a few years later, Celeste has reached 2.8 million women in 145 countries, providing menstrual kits and policy-changing education through her non-profit Days for Girls.

Listen in to learn more about Celeste’s global community of equity change makers, the power of we, and how healing her own poverty story helped her create a movement changing the culture of being female around the world.

  • “We are not our circumstances.”
  • The birth of the Days for Girls non-profit
  • Inviting others to shatter the shame around menstruation
  • What to expect from The Power of Days book
  • The history of menstruation around the world
  • How the Days for Girls movement is changing the culture of being female
  • Minding the gap and reframing experiences with the wisdom of now


“We are not our circumstances. Understanding that we are not the things we go through but the strength that comes from the journey.” - Dr. Gayle Myers

“It’s not just about menstrual equity. It is really a metaphor, in addition to a truth, that we can make a difference by being who we are authentically. And that we really can come together over enormous divides and create tremendous impact with the smallest of things.” - Dr. Gayle Myers
