Several brands have created campaigns ahead of International Women's Day 2019. Here are some of the campaigns that have caught our attention.
In an activiation conceptualised by Ogilvy, Cadbury Bournvita asked women to not forget themselves. The film shows how women tend to care of everyone but themselves and disregard their own health and nutrition in the course.
Candere's campaign that was conceptualised by Bandstand Videos urges women to celebrate their individuality, dreams, and strengths. The video revolves around the lives of seven women, who are asked questions that are stereotypically asked women.
Edelweiss Mutual Fund's film for the occasion shows the importance of right advice. It shows the story of Bhakti Sharma, an Indian girl who broke the world record in 2015 by swimming 2.25 kms in the freezing waters of Antarctica. She talks about how she owes her success to her coach, Leena Sharma – also her mother. The idea is to state that the right advice can have the voice of a woman.
Greenply's social experiment looked to explain how women often tend to underestimate themselves. Women were invited to an art gallery, where various objects were displayed inside a wardrobe. They were asked a question: Which of the things they saw were made by women. As each of the women inspected the objects, all guesses gravitated towards the objects, like clothes, food etc. Not one person thought that the furniture was made by a woman. The experiment was conceptualised by Ogilvy.
