Femvertising Awards


Based on a term we coined in 2014 at Advertising Week, SheKnows Media launched the #Femvertising Awards in 2015 to honor brands that are challenging gender norms by building stereotype-busting, pro-female messages and images into ads that target women. 

Since then, over 250 brands and agencies of all sizes and across all industries submitted their work for recognition, and more than 30,000 votes have been cast for the best ads.

For the second year we launched the 2018 #Femvertising Awards on April 10 in honor of Equal Pay Day, and have expanded the scope and definition to be inclusive of ads that do the right thing by ALL humans, regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs and sexual orientation.
