About Us

Welcome to Demystified, an inclusive online space where women of all backgrounds and perspectives can share their knowledge and stories in hopes of informing, inspiring, and empowering others. Even today, despite the advances we've made, there are still so many mystifying and stigmatized topics when it comes to women's lives. Our hope is to leave judgment at the door and tackle these issues with honesty, clarity, and maybe even some humor. Thank you for joining us on this journey!

Our Story

Demystified was founded by Samantha and Julia, two women who met at a planning meeting for PPNYC’s Sex Education Group. We were struck by the group’s annual “Demystifying Abortion” event, in which a panel of women and abortion providers openly share information and personal stories about abortion. We realized this approach could extend to many areas of women’s lives—specifically those that many of us experience but aren’t always given the space to talk about.
