UN Women Ad Campaign

October 27, 2013 Bonnie Erbe'

BY BONNIE ERBE'

If you haven’t seen the series of powerful ads created this week by UN Women, you should take a look. (http://www.unwomen.org/en) The gender equality arm of the United Nations commissioned ad agency Ogilvy & Mather Dubai to produce the campaign. It’s executives typed in provocative phrases such as “women cannot”, “women should,” “women need to,” and “women cannot” and used Google’s autocomplete function to see what followed.

She had the better credentials. She is already Vice Chair of the Fed, for one thing. She predicted the financial collapse that created the Great Recession. She tends to view economic downturns in very human terms and she received high praise and support from most Senate Democrats, 20 of whom took the unusual step of sending a letter to the President imploring him to nominate her, when it was clear he was heading towards nominating Summers.
