  • Developing an animated television series in Ethiopia about girl super heroines fighting for girls’ health and rights;
  • Creating comic books in Pakistan to deliver healthy menstrual hygiene information to girls and their families;
  • Teaching youth in the United States to use art, dance, and spoken word poetry to advocate for comprehensive sexuality education.
