Summary

Meena Harris hates the phrase "female empowerment.""It suggests that women don't have power," Harris told me, or that if they just had confidence, they'd be more successful.What can seem like semantics strikes Harris — who is the CEO of the activist clothing line Phenomenal Woman and whose aunt is the Democratic vice-presidential nominee — as shifting the focus away from more systemic issues, like sexism and discrimination in the workplace.Harris' forthcoming children's book, "Ambitious Girl," encourages young women to celebrate and pursue their dreams. Slogans on Phenomenal Woman shirts include "Phenomenal Mother" and "Powerful Black Voter." The company has partnered with nonprofit organizations such as the Essie Justice Group, which hopes to end mass incarceration, and TGI Justice, which works to prevent discrimination against transgender, intersex, and gender-variant people, Davis reported.Harris said she's raising her two daughters to take their ambitions seriously — but she isn't "sugarcoating" anything about the racism and sexism they might encounter.
