A look at Trouble

Bari Harlam, Founder Trouble

Trouble: The purpose is to raise as much money as possible for non-profits doing the hard work on closing gender equity gaps. Trouble allows us all to honor and recognize TroubleMakers, courageous disruptors for good. Trouble donates 100% of profits from purchases.

The need to accelerate progress on closing equity gaps for women & girls.

Launching on the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment. Generosity among TroubleMakers who have shared their stories and networks.

The lack of access and power for so many women and the resulting widespread equity gaps. I have personally experienced a range of subtle to overt to aggressive obstacles. The current setbacks for women associated with COVID make the need for progress now especially compelling.

We’ve come a long way, maybe; meaning there has been progress worthy of celebrating yet we have much further to go. The COVID Shecession shines a light on the structural flaws that exist in our homes and workplaces.

Surprised and delighted with the generosity of former colleagues who want to be a part of Trouble’s work.

Grow awareness for Trouble and encourage people to join our email list and follow us on social channels.
