Amika George

In April 2017 Amika George, 19 from the United Kingdom, started #FreePeriods. She started a petition asking Prime Minister Theresa May to give all girls who were eligible for free lunch, free menstrual products as well. She aimed to have just 10 signatures but in the next weeks after she started her campaign she gained 2,000 signatures and a year later she has gained almost 200,00 signatures. Amika was nominated for Teen Vogue’s “21 under 21” list by Emma Watson for her extraordinary work for menstrual equality.
