SpecialityChief executive officer and founder, Bloody Good Period
Chief executive officer and founder, Bloody Good PeriodGabby Edlin is an activist campaigning for menstrual equity, and the founder and CEO of charitable organisation, Bloody Good Period. She started Bloody Good Period back in 2016 when she was volunteering at the New London Synagogue asylum-seekers’ drop-in centre, and discovered that sanitary towels were only provided for ‘in emergencies’. A whip around for donations of towels or tampons on Facebook turned into a full-blown operation to collect and distribute toiletries and period supplies for asylum seekers all around the UK. Bloody Good Period now has a squad of over 200 volunteers who provide more than 6000 menstrual and hygiene products a month to people living in ‘period poverty’ across the UK. Gabby has a Masters in Applied Imagination from Central St Martins specialising in feminism and comedy. She lives in North London. Gabby was named as one of the Evening Standard’s Progress 1000 Top Changemakers in October 2018 and Stylist’s Woman of the Week.
