Brawny Packaging Replaces Iconic Man With Strong Woman

A new campaign for Georgia-Pacific’s Brawny®  supports Women’s History Month (March 2017), and features, for the first time ever, a limited edition package design starring a woman in place of its iconic Brawny Man. The campaign is the second iteration of Brawny’s #StrengthHasNoGender initiative, which highlights the accomplishments of women who have broken down barriers in traditionally male-dominated professions.

Created with agency of record Cutwater the campaign also includes a digital anthem video titled Breaking Barriers which highlights the journey and accomplishments of women over time including Harriet Tubman, Amelia Earhart and Serena Williams. And Brawny is showcasing in videos and other media the stories of four inspiring women in STEM fields who have empowered others through their toughness and perseverance.


“It’s an honor to showcase these resilient women who have inspired so many people with their strength and the trails they have blazed,” said Christian Hughes, Principal, President of Cutwater. “They truly are changing perceptions of gender and we wanted to celebrate that through this year’s #StrengthHasNoGender campaign.”
