Phenomenal Woman Meena Harris: On Feminism's Most Iconic Tee 7x7 Bay Area: People Will Talk

    • Food

As the little black dress was once fashion's unmistakeable emblem for contemporary femininity, a little gray tee is now our symbol for modern feminism. You may have seen founder Meena Harris' "Phenomenal Woman" T-shirts on the likes of America Ferrera and Alicia Keys on Instagram; or perhaps you caught the signatures of #1600Men in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in The New York Times—that was the work of Meena, too. What began as a simple project to celebrate Women's History Month has become a viable and ongoing political action campaign that's garnering attention from the national media as well as celebs. And it's no wonder, what with such excellent female political minds in Meena's family: Yes, she's that Harris, as in presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (her aunt) and as in Hillary Clinton campaign adviser Maya Harris (her mom). We sat down with the San Francisco–based entrepreneur (who's also a VP at Uber) to talk about this new age of feminism, the shortcomings of the tech industry, raising daughters, and how modern women can work with men to transcend the #MeToo era.
