Disenchanted with America’s political climate, fierce founder Meena Harris launched the Phenomenal Woman Campaign in 2017, as a way to promote women’s empowerment and activism. Through Phenomenal Woman merchandise sales, the initiative benefits five organizations—the Dr. Maya Angelou Foundation, Essie for Justice, Girls Who Code, Higher Heights, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and Planned Parenthood. But it’s about more than just selling T-shirts. This Harvard Law graduate is showing the world how to turn an idea into an act of solidarity and bring together a vibrant and engaged community using digital technology. To date, hundreds of thousands of tees and other items have been purchased to support important causes like criminal justice reform, educational excellence, gender parity in STEM, healthcare equity, political representation and reproductive health.
