AMRITA SAIGALMAKING PADS ECO-FRIENDLY—AND EMPOWERING HER INSPIRATION: When Amrita Saigal’s grandma was a teen in India, she had to miss school when she had her period, because of cultural stigmas and a lack of access to feminine hygiene products. Today, just 16 percent of Indian women have access to pads. “In the U.S., periods don’t stop us from reaching our full potential,” says Saigal, 29. “In developing countries, they do.” Even women who can access pads often don’t use them, because they have nowhere to discard them properly, as 70 percent of the population lacks trash disposal. HER BIG IDEA: In 2015, San Francisco–based Saigal and three cofounders launched Saathi Pads, biodegradable sanitary napkins made of banana leaves. As the world’s largest banana producer, India has an excess of leaves—the trees can…

Isn’t it funny that our fall fashion issue arrives in the last sweet moments of summer? It’s a little bittersweet to sit on the beach and think about buying coats and boots, but at the same time, I get such a rush from thinking about the season’s offerings. From colorful, folkloric knits shot among ancient ruins in Peru (p. 252) to sleek, futuristic silhouettes captured on city streets (p. 264), I’ve got my own back-toschool shopping list. It’s hard to believe that this month marks my fifth anniversary as editor of Marie Claire. It’s been a wild and wonderful ride. In almost 25 years of working in magazines, I’ve seen and done a lot.

Iran’s first all-female talk show judges its success by an unusual measure: how much the government hates it. The pioneering weekly show, Samte No (“New Direction”), launched last October and caused an instant outcry among Iran’s religious hard-liners. With a format similar to that of The View, it features three educated, stylish Iranian hosts in Western dress discussing topics ranging from President Donald Trump’s state visit to the Middle East to voting rights to fatwas against wearing nail polish or riding a bicycle. “Women expressing their opinions on TV is very threatening to our ultraconservative rulers,” says Maryam Faghihimani, one of the show’s hosts. “They label us ‘criminals who shamelessly promote women’s empowerment.’” Iran’s regime is unable to ban the show, however, because it is filmed in London by liberal Persian…
