1. To spotlight the portrayal of women in the media as objects and the correlation between this and: a) body image and self-esteem issues for women and girls; b) violence and harrassment against women, and c) a lack of ambition to aspire to leadership roles on the part of women

To advocate a greater sensitivity and responsibility by the media, entertainment and advertising industries and a culture that celebrates diversity and the positive portrayal of women in the media

To champion a greater share of voice for women in the media

To recognise the role of individuals as content creators and distributors and their power to use social media to call out content that continues to objectify, sexualise and diminish women while ensuring the messages and photos they post online emphasise actions and values rather than looks

To include men as an integral part of the solution and to engage them as champions for the positive media portrayal of women while at the same time, identifying men as victims of objectification and straightjacketing by traditional concepts of masculinity.

To make media literacy and critical thinking a core element of the teaching curriculum, especially at the secondary school level


1. The usual way an agency gets work is through a pitch. A pitch is an audition, with the client giving a brief to a number of advertising agencies, and choosing the one that best resolves the brief. Of course, it doesn’t always work that way (see The Pitch TV show), but for the most part, this is how agencies are paired with clients.

2. The client is there to present the agency with its problems, and when it needs solutions. The types of problems and solutions vary greatly depending upon the client’s business and the ad agency’s area of expertise. How this is done is different from agency to agency, but the basic steps are more or less the same.

3. The account manager (and team) meets with the client to identify the problem that needs to be solved.

The account manager writes a creative brief based on that problem. This will include competitive analysis, research, the assistance of the planner and/or creative director, and eventually, sign off from the client.

The account manager briefs the creative team and includes a timeline, budget, proposed media and other factors.

The creative team works on the project for several days (or weeks if they’re lucky) and brings the first round of ideas to the creative director.

The creative director will cull the ideas that are not working, and direct the team to explore the good ideas.

The creative team will continue to work on the ideas, but bring in the production department (if needed), account manager and other members of the agency to make sure the work is on track. If there are printed pieces, or a shoot is required, this is when the production department will begin estimates.

The creative director approves the final ideas, and the creative team presents (hopefully) them to the client.

The client will go away and discuss the ideas, before giving feedback to the agency. This may result in a reworking of ideas (repeat steps 3 to 7) or a green light to move into the execution of the ideas. At this point, a budget and timeline will once again be approved.

The creative team works closely with the account team, media buying, production, and the creative director to produce the ads, whatever form they may take.

The final ads are placed in front of the client for approval. Once the client approves, the ads are published, be it online, in print, outdoor, on the air, or any other media.

The agency will monitor the success, and ROI, of the ads and give the feedback to the client.

The client pays the agency. And then the whole process is repeated.
