On International Women's Day, we celebrate the achievements of females throughout history, and how they overcame society's obstacles regardless of their race, language, culture, or political background.
In honor of this special day, these brands bring to light female empowerment through their special ads released in time for March 8. Check them out below!
For International Women's Day, clothing brand Levi's launched the #ShapeMyWorld campaign with three powerful stories of women overcoming the odds. For this ad, brave mom Jasmine Mendiola shared how she carried on even when his son was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia. She shared: "The thing with the challenges I've been through, I didn't let those things shape the path for me. What I made sure was I carved my own, and made the most out of it."
In this laundry detergent ad, Kris Aquino asks, "Bakit ba handa ang buong mundo na dumihan ang ating pagkatao?" (You gotta love the product tie-in: "There's no accusation that stains so deeply that the truth cannot wash away.")
The Philippine Army salutes our women soldiers who chose to risk their lives to protect our countrymen by showing them in their element: in combat fatigues, marching through fields, and driving tanks.
The social network's International Women’s Day campaign this year is about giving credit to the women who made a difference—because they weren't recognized for their efforts the first time. Check Facebook's own page for the full campaign when it goes live.
Avon partnered with Swedish pop duo Icona Pop for "All My Girls," which celebrates "the sisterhood, self-confidence, and courage of women who stand up for their dreams."
UN Women says "The Time is Now to reflect on progress made, to stand up for change, and to celebrate the ordinary and extraordinary women who have changed the world through their words and actions."
This ad debuted during a commercial break in the recent Academy Awards. In the video, the tennis legend narrates, "I've never been the right kind of woman. Oversized and overconfident. Too mean if I don't smile. Too black for my tennis whites. Too motivated for motherhood. But I'm proving, time and time again, there's no wrong way to be a woman."
The tech company challenges us to Search on—because a gender-equal world is an informed world.
