We See Equal

Many of our products are made uniquely for women and men. We have deep insights into their lives, their challenges, and their aspirations. So when it comes to the gender bias they face, it’s up to us to help change the narrative.

In 2017, we launched this gender equality campaign to show the world as we see it—equal. It’s been viewed millions of times in more than 180 countries and was named one of the most inclusive ads of 2017 by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA).

We focus on three areas where we can uniquely make a difference. Click to jump to each section and learn more.

Advertising & media

The ANA found that 28% of ads portray women negatively. As one of the biggest advertisers in the world, we leverage our powerful voice to help break down stereotypes and motivate change.

Education & economic opportunities

Every girl deserves access to education. And as a woman, she deserves to live to her fullest potential. Economic equality can only make our world stronger. Through our company and brand impact programs, we’re helping to make gender equality possible.

Always Keeping Girls in School

In some countries, a girl’s period could lead her to miss school—or drop out altogether. In 2006, Always started providing African girls with puberty education and sanitary pads. Since then, 78% of schools reported an improvement in attendance.
