    The bottom line

    With the power of diversity and collaboration, VOXAPOD is part of a wave of purpose-filled ventures proving that profit and philanthropy can be aligned to create sustainable impact. We take pride in our work and embody the social and environmental change that we crave in the world around us.

    If you didn’t know, “voxa” is the Latin word for “voice.” With a bottom line that includes people, planet, and purpose, we’re not only giving a voice to menstrual equity and our environment, but we’re opting to do something about it.

    A (loud) collective purpose

    Menstrual health is a humanitarian issue. The problem isn’t that periods show up every month for half of the population. The problem is the way we’re addressing it (or not addressing it).

    Let’s talk stats for a few.

    Globally, we don’t tax Viagra, razors, Rogaine, or even potato chips. Yet, because tampons and pads are considered a “luxury item," they receive a 5–20% tax, making them largely unaffordable for women in developing countries. In those same countries, 40-60% of girls don’t attend secondary school, sometimes due to a lack of access to menstrual health products—and those that do attend will often drop out for the same reason.

    Every purchase of VOXAPOD® helps create equity and keep girls in schoolby meeting their menstrual health needs.

    Inspired, authentic and bloody brave

    We are a benefit corporation made up of real humans aspiring for a better future, and putting in the hard work to make positive social change. Just like you.

    Amanda Wilson | Founder & Innovator

    Amanda is a humanitarian, self-proclaimed anthropologist, and mediocre (at best) ukulele player. When not adventuring outdoors with her daughters or satiating her epicurean food addiction, she's geeking out on fantasy. Her real passion, however, is working to eradicate the gender gap from a systemic and research-based approach. She believes in the power of diversity and bringing people and resources together to create a more powerful and effective impact. She is the founding President of non-profit, Woman Led, and former board chair of Xcelerate providing support for the success of woman-led companies.


    Steve Dodson | Product Design & Development

    Sought out as the designer for this project because of his undying commitment to live green – having operated his business on wind and solar energy since the mid-90’s (before it was cool). With nearly three decades of designing and developing innovative products (including other medical and surgical products), Steven, not only helped realize the VOXAPOD concept, but added invaluable authorship to the design. He is also a photographer, architect and cancer survivor. He believes, like so many world-changing ideas, “impossibility” is a human invention.


    Yeruwelle de Rouen | Creative Impact Strategist

    Living from her heart and intuition, Yeruwelle is a source of grounding and light to our work. Reverse engineering and systems thinking are her superpowers. As an avid reader, philosopher and social activist, she dives deep to understand how we can build effective systemic change towards social equity through education, dynamic dialogue, and community engagement.

    Strategically dismantling the hierarchies that keep women at the bottom isn’t for the faint of heart, so you may find her getting lost in the wilderness, or nurturing her soul through yoga, hiking, and gardening. She isn’t known from shying away from an esoteric lecture or dancing to Trap and Deep House EDM at a music festival.
