A more gender-equal inclusive world begins with how individuals choose to challenge biases and stereotypes. The confidence to think free and own the life choices for a woman is a perspective that needs to be instilled at a young age. This International Women’s Day, ITC Vivel changes the narrative with its unique interpretation and rendition of this year’s global theme ‘Choose to Challenge’. In line with its philosophy of Ab SamjhautaNahin, Vivel presents the Women of Tomorrow in an encouraging conversation that reimagines an unbiased, ungendered, bright, and confident future for young women.
Women since their childhood have conformed to a prescriptive behavioral norm which perpetuates stereotypes and gender-based biases. Vivel’s initiative this women’s day is to enable parents to break free and consciously begin a transformative journey to nurture a child, especially a girl child’s individuality and confidence with positive affirmations from a young age.
The campaign demonstrates the importance of this transformative journey and encourages everyone to nurture dreams and aspirations. The conversation starter is portrayed in a digital film that lays emphasis on having positive conversations with children about their own choices, likes, and aspirations irrespective of their gender. Children don’t define their ambitions or qualities from a gender lens nor do they limit their thinking. Why then should this innate free-thinking process be molded into a gendered prescriptive patriarchal narrative as they grow? ITC Vivel catalyzes this much-needed change in attitude towards instilling confidence and nurturing freedom of choice at a young age.
