Meet the Female Gamechangers
by Jordan Boswell
made by women for women
There's an exciting shift happening in women's health that impacts us all, and these ladies are leading the charge!
While some women’s health products, like Vagisil, have been popular for decades, over the past few years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in health products made by women, for women. Previously, health products geared towards women were marketed based on the idea that there’s something wrong with our bodies — we’re either too fat, too smelly, not traditionally beautiful enough.
These women are working to fix that!
Meet the Female Gamechangers: Keech Combe Shetty is part of the third generation to manage Combe, Inc, a company that was founded by her grandfather in 1949 to create products that fulfill unmet consumer needs in the personal care space; Bethany Edwards co-created Lia, the first flushable and biodegradable pregnancy test (available later this year) and won #ThePitch competition for female entrepreneurs at our #BlogHer18 Health event in January; Meika Hollender is the co-founder of Sustain Natural, a leading brand of all natural vagina-friendly products and was named to Forbes 30 Under 30 list; and BlogHer's own Dr. Elizabeth Yuko who is our SheKnows Health & Sex Editor, bioethicist and writer, and will moderate this discussion.
Together, they'll offer advice to other entrepreneurs looking to break in to the health product space, discuss untapped markets that are ripe with opportunity, and share what they wish they knew when first starting out.
