We believe women who cause Trouble change the world
Trouble was started by Bari and Meredith, two women who’d found their seats at the board room table and knew that was far from enough. They were tired of hearing how far we’ve come as a society when they could see clearly how far we still have to go. They wanted to accelerate the process of equity by creating a new kind of brand, one that inspires women, supports women, funds women’s causes, and recognizes the barriers caused by intersectionality.
A world where we all come together and cause trouble for good, where difficult conversations happen in order to make the world a more equitable, inclusive place.

our guiding values
We are not the first women to fight for empowerment. We are the members of a century’s-long community, and we are actively recruiting more like-minded people into our ranks. Because we know there is strength in numbers, and we all go further when we work and collaborate together.
We’re serious about equity without taking ourselves too seriously. We can incite change using our wit, our wonder and our wisdom.
