Gillette Venus Encourages Women to "Use Your And"

This New Year, Gillette Venus wants to help inspire a resolution: In a world of labels, #UseYourAnd to unleash all the extraordinary qualities that live within you!

Venus recently launching their “Use Your And” campaign to support women and girls to stand-up against the lost opportunities generated by one-dimensional labels and inspire them to recognize and express their full potential.

All women have “ANDs” and multiple talents, but they often are limited by one-dimensional labels. A new Global Labels Survey by Gillette Venus reveals that most women around the world (70%) have felt labeled starting as young as 10 years old and nearly half say those labels have had a negative effect on their lives (43%) vs. a positive one (26%).

This often includes that women can be seen as both smart AND pretty or strong AND sensitive. These “ANDs” or dimensions of a woman are what make her extraordinary. At Gillette Venus, we believe that all women have the right to achieve their full potential by embracing their "ANDs” and not be limited by any "Ors.”

Summit Global Conference & Women’s Empowerment Expert to educate women in identifying their stereotypical labels and help support them to use their ANDs.
