P&G launches equal pay campaign ahead of International Women's Day

Procter & Gamble is adding its bit to the fight for equal pay with a new corporate ad, launched in the run-up to International Women's Day.

P&G launches equal pay campaign ahead of International Women's Day

To create the ad, P&G turned to a small boutique agency, Badger & Winters, based on its successful campaign "#womennotobjects" at Cannes aimed changing the guidelines so they discourage jurors from honouring ads that objectify women, reported Ad Age

International Women's Day is on 8 March.

Currently, "#WeSeeEqual" is a digital campaign, running on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere, but could ultimately move to TV and is expected to be a multi-year programme, chief brand officer Marc Pritchard told Ad Age

This first video shows vignettes, that appear to be a mix of user-generated footage and snippets from P&G brand campaigns. The clips are interspersed with text lines such as "problems don't care who solves them", and "butts don't are who kick them". 

The closing line is: "Equal pay doesn't care who demands it".

P&G follows in the footsteps of Audi which used its Super Bowl spot to promote equal pay for women
