Molly Hayward always knew she wanted to do something that would have a social impact, but she had no idea that she’d eventually devote herself to taking the taboo out of women’s periods.

Hayward is one of the founders of Cora, a premium organic tampon startup that donates a month’s worth of sanitary period supplies to a girl in a developing country for each monthly membership a customer buys. Since Cora’s founding in 2014, the company has delivered more than 5 million menstruation products to women and girls in need in Kenya and India.

I interviewed Molly Hayward for Forbes. Read my story, here, for more about the amazing work Cora is doing.
