Pantene Ad Nails Double Standards At Work

Be strong, and shine

When it comes to double standards between the sexes at work, you wouldn't expect to take your cues from a shampoo maker. Yet in 60 fleeting seconds, the latest ad by Pantene Philippines nails what it is to be a career woman today.

If a man is seen as the "boss,” then a woman is judged to be “bossy.” And the list of contrasting labels goes on, at once powerful and simple. Case in point: Marissa Mayer.

According to an article in TIME, the commercial was even voted up from Facebook's own COO Sheryl Sandberg, who scribed the following glowing words on her page:

"This is 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. Really worth watching. Lean In prize of the day for sure!"

Job well done from the whole Pantene team, regardless of which sexual organs you happen to possess.

Watch, and love. Can you relate to any of the dramatized scenarios?
