    Jennifer Weiss-Wolf

    Vice President, Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law

    Jennifer Weiss-Wolf is vice president of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law and co-founder of the legal institute, Period Equity. A leading advocate for issues of gender, politics—and menstruation—she was dubbed the “architect of the U.S. campaign to squash the tampon tax” by Newsweek and the nation’s “tampon crusader” by New York Magazine. Her 2017 book Periods Gone Public: Taking a Stand for Menstrual Equity was lauded by Gloria Steinem as “the beginning of liberation for us all.” A regular contributor to Ms. Magazine, Weiss-Wolf’s writing and work have been featured by The New York Times, Washington Post, TIME, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Vox, Vice, and NPR, among others. She also is a contributor to the 2018 Young Adult anthology, Period.: Twelve Voices Tell the Bloody Truth.
