International Women’s Day is all about celebrating womanhood and giving credit where it’s due. This Women’s Day, brands are following the #BreakTheBias theme with their campaigns empowering women in their own thoughtful ways. They have recognized the various contributions made by women and stepped up to salute it.
Kaya, India’s leading skincare & the largest dermatologist network enabled brand, recently unveiled a new identity, symbolic of a strategic realignment with its ever growing young consumer base. Punctuated by this new purpose fuelled mantra, “Beautiful is You”, the brand has launched its latest digital campaign- #WhatWomenWant for International Women’s Day, that aims to celebrate women exactly the way they want to be celebrated.
It is said that women’s minds are like a browser with a hundred tabs open, simultaneously. While there is not much one can say to object this, understanding what a woman wants is not always as complicated as it’s made out to be. Women are strong and beautiful, they know exactly what they want and how they want it. They know how they want to be viewed, treated and respected by everyone in every sphere of their lives. Through this campaign Kaya is celebrating women clearly through their lens only, which is how it should be! This International Women’s Day, Kaya asked women #WhatWomenWant to showcase proudly the fabulousness of what women really expect.
Koo – the largest platform for self-expression in native languages – has launched a refreshing campaign – #BejhijhakBol – through a stirring video which inspires self-expression among women, without fear or hesitation. A series of stellar performances by women from all walks of life emphasizes the need to open up and unleash emotions through self-expression. Released on International Women’s Day, the campaign leverages the theme for 2022 – Gender Equality for a Sustainable Tomorrow – underscoring the need to foster gender equality in the interconnected world by enabling and encouraging unfettered expression.
Taking Koo’s core proposition of language based self-expression to a new level, the campaign, through the tagline – aur dil mein jo bhi ho, Koo par bejhijhak bol – calls on women to let go of inhibitions and to indulge in animated conversations. It reiterates Koo’s philosophy that like language, gender barriers too need to be erased to ensure freedom of expression in the digital world. Koo was built with a vision to empower every Indian by enabling native language expression online. The video reflects this sentiment by depicting regular women (not celebrities) from across cities, cultures and societies going about their daily lives, empowered with the ability to express and engage in conversations of their choice.

Heads Up For Tails
Love knows no gender, and no one knows this better than our pets! A pet’s love is unconditional, and in many ways – blind. A wagging tail knows nothing about looks. A paw will not judge you for your gender. They just need a heart to love, a heart that will be the centre of their universe. Pets are often called a ‘man’s best friend’. This International Women’s day, Heads Up For Tails revisits this phrase and celebrates the beautiful friendship a woman shares with her furry friend through a special campaign called “#WomansBestFriend”.
Women throughout history have shared intimate relationships with their pets and this film is an ode to that friendship. The film captures stories of real women from different walks of life and their relationship with their furry companions & how they make their lives whole.
This love, affection, and bond shared between women and pets has been captured through a heartwarming brand film.
Over the years, Tata Pravesh – a brand of steel doors & windows from Tata Steel – has always endeavoured to open the doors of the mind through its thought provoking films for various occasions. The brand’s Women’s Day film is the latest in a long line of films that attempts to change the way we look at the world around us. The campaign theme for International Women’s Day [IWD] 2022 – #BreakTheBias – encourages us to imagine a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive. This clearly resonates with the DEI agenda of Tata Steel, the parent company and the progressive mindset of Tata Pravesh.
We need to break the bias in our communities, our workplaces, our schools, colleges and universities. But, most importantly, we need to #BreakTheBias in our minds. That’s what Tata Pravesh’s IWD film attempts to do, opening our minds to the fact that even among the so called evolved audience, there is an abundance of unconscious biases that we need to take cognizance of and work actively to eliminate.
