Madame Gandhi is an outspoken and influential activist, speaker, and musician. She is a powerful voice for gender equality, empowerment, and wellness, often integrating storytelling and music into her engaging presentations.
Having gained recognition as the former drummer for the artist M.I.A., she's listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 Music Class of 2019, producing music that elevates and celebrates the female voice. Her song, “The Future is Female,” climbed to #8 on the Viral US Top 50 Spotify Charts following the 2017 Women’s March. Her solo EP "Voices" has received critical acclaim from outlets like FADER, Paper Mag and Milk and a full-length album is forthcoming.
In 2015, Madame Gandhi ran the London Marathon free-bleeding to combat period stigma around the world, sparking a viral global conversation about how we treat menstruation in various cultures. Gandhi has partnered with menstrual health organizations to improve women’s access to affordable and safe menstrual care. She speaks often about how menstruation taboo affects women and girls daily around the world, and was part of the early round table discussions that led to the elimination of the “luxury tax” on tampons in her home city of New York.
As an influencer, Madame Gandhi has partnered with brands like Adidas and The North Face, and is a strong supporter of the “The Future Is Female” slogan – which she sees as a way to position femininity as something aspirational, to build paradigms and reinvent systems that elevate true gender equality.
Gandhi uses her voice, music, and written work to empower her audiences to be their best and authentic selves. She believes wholeheartedly in the idea that we must strive to live in a world that is “linked and not ranked,” in which each person has something unique to contribute, and therefore we must provide each person with the environment they need to access their fullest potential.
Gandhi holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics, Political Science and Women’s Studies from Georgetown and an MBA from Harvard Business School, and has used her degrees to run her own musical project as well as advise music companies Spotify, Stem, Bonnaroo and D’addario. Between 2011 and 2013, Gandhi worked at Interscope Records as their first-ever digital analyst, studying patterns in Spotify and YouTube consumption behavior.
