132 | Meika Hollender on Feminism, Women’s Health and Making Safe Sex Fun

meika-hollender-katie-dalebout-I read an article about Meika Hollender and her company Sustain last spring and insanely knew wanted to have her on the podcast. A few months later I was chatting with her about everything from what it was like starting condom company with her father to the future of women’s health and safe sex. Meika is such a down-to-each, smart, and fascinating woman. I loved getting to know her on this episode and I really think you will too. Her company Sustain’s mission and products are fantastic and I’m so happy I was able to connect with Meika.

 John Oliver’s Sex Ed Segment we mention several times::

 

“Sex is a healthy natural thing, its going to happen…. so we need to talk to kids about how to be safe versus try to shame them away from it.” @missmeiks @sustain @katiedalebout #LetItOutPod

“Sex is a very important piece of the overall wellness puzzle.”@missmeiks @sustain @katiedalebout #LetItOutPod

“It always starts with having an open conversation.” @missmeiks @sustain @katiedalebout #LetItOutPod

“If we can  start accepting women as sexually active beings, all of this other stuff will fall into place.”@missmeiks @sustain @katiedalebout #LetItOutPod

“The best kind of marketing is to do things you really care about.” @missmeiks @sustain @katiedalebout #LetItOutPod
