A new Pantene ad focusing on gender equality in the workplace has gotten the attention of the public as well as high profile women like Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg. The ad, created for the Philippines, has gone viral in a big way. The ad explores double standards in the workplace. A man is the ‘boss’ while a woman is ‘bossy”. A man is ‘smooth’ a woman is a “show-off”. Its a real eye-opener on how we treat and view ourselves and each other.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg shared her thoughts on the ad stating ‘it’s one of the most powerful videos I have ever seen illustrating how when women and men do the same things, they are seen in completely different ways.”
