The Center for Intimacy Justice is working toward a sexual culture of equality and wellbeing.
We are the first advocacy nonprofit dedicated to establishing equal rules in business toward women’s sexual wellness companies.
We’re starting by changing digital advertising practices in the United States to enable women’s sexual health and wellness companies to advertise -- catalyzing greater technological innovation, education, and cultural understanding for women’s sexual health and wellbeing.
Together, let’s rewrite the rules.

“I, for one, am fine with walking onto the subway and seeing giant penises obscured as cactuses; I would simply like to see some papayas alongside them.”

Watch our Founder discuss the role of business in supporting sexual equality:
Jackie completed her Stanford MBA in June and will complete her Harvard MPA later this year. She has worked in venture capital and women’s health investing (including on deals in sex education and contraception technology), and has a strong track record as a social entrepreneur. At age 14, Jackie founded Everybody Dance Now!, a national youth development organization that now has chapters in over 20 cities. Jackie has also headed Spark, a millennial philanthropic network that equips young people to be effective gender equality advocates. Jackie is an activist for trauma-informed education and for ending sexual violence, and she is deeply involved in national women’s rights and women’s philanthropy movements.
“I was raised in a family that discussed sex and pleasure openly. As a result, I could help other people around these under-discussed, yet important, human topics.
However, after a Harvard Law student sexually assaulted me, I had to relearn trust and intimacy, and reclaim my own sexuality. I became even more passionate about helping people, especially women, experience our sexuality not as a source of trauma, victimization, or pain – but of joy, connection, and empowerment.
I spent every break during grad school traveling to meet entrepreneurs in the women’s sextech movement who were bravely innovating to improve womxn’s lives, in the face of major obstacles. I became deeply inspired, and determined to support the strengthening of a nondiscriminatory, thriving sexual wellness market — one that can more fairly leverage the power of entrepreneurship and technology to improve our most intimate lives.”
