International Women’s Day Campaign Engages Thousands

Overview

We pitched a unique campaign angle for International Women’s Day to send thank you notes directly to the all-female factions of the Kurdish Peshmerga. By whiteboarding the unique traits of the story we wanted to tell, we unearthed a concept that celebrated the bravery of these women without glorifying violence: Females on the Frontline.

The campaign theme allowed us to highlight different angles of the women’s sacrifice, as they fight not only on the front lines against ISIS, but also on the front lines of breaking gender norms, protecting their families, and for the preservation of the Kurdish culture.

Strategy

Powerful work deserves powerful communications. Copywriting, infographics, email headers, landing pages – all help you move communities toward organizational goals.

Individuals allow organizations to achieve goals of all shapes and sizes. We seek out the right people and inspire them to get involved and take action.

Momentum matters. When we need supporters to take action, we strive to meet them where they are on their Twitter feed, in their inbox, or chatting with their friends.

Implementation

After the campaign development, we created a microsite that reflected the theme of celebrating bravery without glorifying violence. Supporters could come to the page, learn more about the women through video and other content, and send a message of support to Kurdish female fighters. We leveraged social media to inspire interest in the campaign, and reached over 1 million people via Facebook and Twitter.
