George

Founder | #FreePeriods

Amika George is a 20 year old student at Cambridge University, who, at the age of 17, started the Free Periods campaign from her bedroom to end period poverty in the UK. After reading about children missing school as they were unable to afford menstrual products, Amika started an online movement, organising a protest in London, attended by over 2,000. Her campaign persuaded the UK government to provide free menstrual products in all English schools and colleges from early 2020.

She has received global recognition for her campaigning work including a Goalkeepers award by Bill & Melinda Gates and was listed by TIME magazine as one of the 25 most influential teenagers in the world. She has launched the next phase of Free Periods, raising funds for a legal campaign to ensure that every child worldwide has equal access to education, uninhibited by their period.
