The reversal of Roe v. Wade has made investing in women’s health—from public policy to the private sector—even more critical. In Silicon Valley, Deena Shakir has quickly become a go-to VC in the space. The only female partner at Lux Capital, a firm with $4 billion in assets under management, Shakir has backed employer-benefits platform Maven Clinic, fertility tech company Alife Health, and pediatrics startup Summer Health. The Google alumna and former State Department staffer even helped mint Maven as the first unicorn in the women’s and family health category.       Follow: Twitter Instagram
