She is a mother of 2 girls, wife, daughter, and the niece of Vice President Kamala Harris, Meena Harris is the founder of the Phenomenal Woman campaign. Her grassroots initiative was built for activism and women empowerment. What started as a small initiative to support women organizations, exploded into a movement. Inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem, Harris’ ‘Phenomenal Woman’ t-shirt sold 2,500 units on the first day. What was originally intended to be sold for the month of March during Women’s History Month, extended for an additional two months. Harris is often asked how she did it, but she has no secret formula. Her goal was to inform and educate people in a creative way, utilizing digital platforms to make a social impact. All in all, whether someone is wearing the t-shirt or sharing an image on social media, she hopes it encourages people to use their voice so they too can be heard. "When you inspire other people to do the same, you’ve created power that has the potential to elevate an entire community. It starts with identifying the issues you’re passionate about and thinking creatively,” said Harris in a past interview on how you can change the world.
There is power in your words and how you express yourself! What may seem small to you can impact the masses ahead! Speak up, use your voice, stand firm on your platform!
