Speaker Highlight: Cass Clemmer

Creator and Illustrator of Toni the Tampon

Cass is a queer artist and menstrual health educator who harnesses the power of creativity and humor to shift the conversation around menstruation. Cass grew up as a missionary kid in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where a deeply conservative community taught everyone to be ashamed of their periods. Today, Cass is fighting back by sketching tampons, pads, cups, and sponges as a way to educate menstruators of all ages and genders about the magic that is menstruation.
