SOUTH & CENTRAL AMERICA TREND BULLETIN
(F)EMPOWERMENT
It’s time to support and empower women
in South & Central America
NOVEMBER 2015
You are losing women’s attention and
trust while missing out on their massive
buying power.
If your brand isn’t
communicating well
with women, your
brand is losing.
In recent months (OK, years), many brands across
South & Central America have caused controversy
and attracted the wrong kind of attention with sexist
advertising campaigns that have drawn widespread
criticism on social networks and in public forums.
For a long time, countries across the region – and
industries of all varieties – have been guilty of using
out-dated gender stereotypes or objectifying women to
sell products and services.
INTRODUCTION

(F)EMPOWERMENT 3www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
In March 2015, Brazilian nail lacquer brand
Risqué launched the Homens Que Amamos
(‘Men We Love’) line of products. They featured
names of men, accompanied by proud,
supposedly romantic phrases, such as ‘João
disse eu te amo’ (‘João said I love you’), ‘Fê
mandou mensagem’ (‘Fê sent a message’) and
‘André fez o jantar’ (‘André cooked dinner’).
“What makes a woman happy is not a man
who thinks making dinner is the exception,
but understand that this is his task as it is a
woman’s task”, from Petiscos, Julia Petit’s
blog from Brazil.
(F)EMPOWERMENT 4www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
An advertising piece distributed by the
Colombian energy company Codensa in March
2015 angered its users on social networks. A
flyer distributed with household bills included
the phrase ‘I have to ask my husband what
insufficient funds means’, accompanied by
an image of a woman shopping. After much
controversy, the company removed all the ads
from the campaign.
(F)EMPOWERMENT 5www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
In March 2014, following multiple complaints
(and a Change.org petition that attracted
more than 1,500 signatures), the Puerto Rican
government asked gum brand Dentyne Ice to
remove an ad campaign from all subway cars.
Showing a seated man, the ad read: ‘Do not
give up your chair. Offer your lap. Dentyne ICE:
Ready for every chance.’
(F)EMPOWERMENT 6www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
Of course, when it comes to Latin America, beer
advertising is still the most consistent offender.
In February 2015, Brazilian beer brand Skol launched
an advertising campaign for Carnival with phrases
that mentioned a ‘lack of control’, such as ‘I accept
it before learning what the question is’ and ‘I left my
‘no’ at home’. After widespread media criticism and
a social media backlash, Skol removed the ads.
Conti beer were another offender, accused of sexism
after an ill-advised post on the brand’s Facebook
page. It read ‘tenho medo de ir no bar pedir uma
rodada e o garçom trazer minha ex’ (‘I’m afraid to
go to a bar and order a round of beer* in case the
waiter brings out my ex’), and ended with a request
for suspension and a warning to the agency that
conducted the campaign.
*in Portuguese, the expression used for “round of beer” is the
same as the one for “a woman who’s been around”
(F)EMPOWERMENT 7www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
In Brazil, women make BRL 1.1 trillion per year and
are responsible for 85% of shopping decisions.
(Data Popular, September 2014)
In Mexico, women are graduating from college more
than men. The Asociación Nacional de Universidades
e Instituciones de Educación Superior (ANUIES)
revealed that the enrolment of women in graduate
programs is 50.4%, while among specializations
women make up 51%.
The participation of women in Latin America and
the Caribbean in the labor market had the largest
increase among all regions globally – increasing
from 40% to 54% between 1990 and 2013.
(UN, April 2015)
... as consumers, students, politicians,
entrepreneurs and more.
Yet women across the
region are becoming
more empowered...
(F)EMPOWERMENT 8www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
This is not just about being ‘politically correct’. It’s
about effectively communicating with a very large
proportion of your customer base. Women are not a
market niche – if your brand is not talking to them
properly, you are losing money.
Beyond being bad for business (it has been
scientifically proven that sex doesn’t sell!), misogynist
messaging contributes to a more unequal and
dangerous society for women. It propagates a culture
that impacts the numbers of rapes, murders and
cases of domestic abuse – in Brazil, for example,
there’s one rape every 10 minutes (Anuário Brasileiro
de Segurança Pública, 2014).
To put it simply, out-dated brand messages cause
more harm than hurt feelings.
This means the gap between a modern
woman’s reality (or at least, desired
reality) in Latin America and how they
are portrayed in marketing is widening.
These socioeconomic
changes are yet to
be reflected in much
of the marketing that
reaches women.
(F)EMPOWERMENT 9www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
Data Popular and Instituto Patrícia Galvão, August 2013
65% of women in Brazil don’t identify with the way
they’re represented in campaigns.
(F)EMPOWERMENT 10www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
Maria Guimarães, co-founder of Cerveja Feminista
“When hypersexualized beer advertising objectifies a
woman so aggressively, it’s saying to people throughout
the country that a woman is an object. And an object has
an owner. The man is the owner. And, as owner of the
object, he can do whatever he wants with it.”
In Latin America, women are fighting
for equality in public and private life.
Brands that not only avoid harmful
stereotypes or objectification but
also actually support women’s
causes and better communicate
with modern women will be loved –
at the expense of those that don’t.
We’ve said before – brands across the region are
now expected to be part of the social tissue, to fight
the same fights people are engaged in as groups or
individuals. The fight for gender equality is one of these
issues (in South & Central America and, of course,
elsewhere in the world).
More and more, if a brand is not part of the solution,
it will be seen as part of the problem. It’s time to
break away from gender stereotypes, communicate
with women in the manner that they deserve and
empower them to live the lifestyle they desire.

THE CLUB
Women face different challenges from region to region.
But many share a passion for change, and inspire each
other across borders.
In June 2015, the “Ni Una Menos” campaign reached
110 cities in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico,
as people protested against femicide. In Mexico,
#NoAcosoCallejero (‘no street harassment’) took to
social networks and the streets. In Puerto Rico, women
created the hashtag #andandolacallesola (‘walking
the streets alone’), in protest against comments by a
high-ranking police officer that women should not walk
alone late at night.
And in January 2015, the documentary used by
the Chega de Fiu Fiu campaign (against women
harassment on the streets) in Brazil was funded
using the crowdfunding platform Catarse. In July,
the country also saw the creation of Cora Coralina, a
public library focused on feminist subjects.
The digitally entwined population of the
world is sharing stories of repression and

WHY NOW
(F)EMPOWERMENT 13www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
Latin America is the leader in women’s political
representation.
In political leadership, the region has Cristina Kirchner
in Argentina, Dilma Rousseff in Brazil and Michelle
Bachelet in Chile. In the NGO sector, there’s Relinda
Sosa from Peru and Sandra Ramos from Nicaragua.
In the world of business, María Mercedes Cuéllar is
president of Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos
(Felaban), Paula Santili is Senior Vice-President of
PepsiCo Mexico, and Luiza Trajano is CEO of Magazine
Luiza.
Across the board, women in SCA are doing it for
themselves. They can assume political power,
run NGOs and start their own businesses (and
crowdfunding platforms like Catarse, Idea.Me or
Fondeadora are making this easier than ever!).
Just one example of the rising power of SCA’s women?
According to the latest survey by the Ministry of
Economy on Entrepreneurship and Gender (March
2015), 38% of micro-entrepreneurs in Chile are female,
and 40% of those are heads of household.
Women are climbing higher into
positions of power.
2. FEMPRENEURS
and Role Models
WHY NOW
(F)EMPOWERMENT 14www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
Social rules and traditions are being challenged or
ignored in many societies. Individuals are forming
their own singular definitions of what they seek
from their own lives. Formal entities (governments
or organizations) are less able to impose values or
expectations.
Success and status have been redefined in personal
terms. Consumers are less accepting of media
organizations or brands that dictate who they are
and how they should behave. From sexuality to career
choices, it’s up to the individual to decide.
Consumers no longer let institutions
dictate how they live their lives.
3. Institutional
Impotence
WHY NOW
(F)EMPOWERMENT 15www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
As much as SCA’s women feel empowered, they’re
also looking to brands to be partners in change. That
means taking a BRAND STANDS on issues around
gender prejudice.
In March 2015, Cannes Festival introduced “The
Lion For Change” category, rewarding actions
that challenge gender stereotypes. Three out of 18
shortlisted winners were from Latin America. In Brazil,
interest is growing in new ways to portray women
in advertising. In August 2015, São Paulo-based
Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing (ESPM)
launched “Publicidade e Mulheres: um novo jeito de
fazer publicidade para mulher”, a course designed
to introduce marketing professionals to new ways to
advertise to women.
Years ago, marketing used weaknesses to try and sell
products and services to women. Today, brands must
offer empowerment.
Consumers will embrace brands that take
a stand on the issues that matter to them
– such as sexism.

In November 2014, Everlast partnered with the Peruvian
NGO Paremos El Acoso Callejero (Latin American
Observatory Against Street Harassment) on Sílbale a tu

caught catcalling women on the streets. Mothers were
disguised with clothes and wigs, and taken to witness
their child’s behavior - whilst receiving phone tips from
Natália Málaga, the trainer of the Peruvian women’s
volleyball team. When their sons said something
derogatory, the mothers shouted at them, scolding them
for their treatment of women.

drew attention to the salary gap between men and
women. All menu items were 30% more expensive for
men – the average pay gap between the sexes across
Brazil. Diners who questioned the price difference
were presented with a leaflet explaining the action and
drawing attention to pay equality.

Instituto Maria da Penha
In July 2015, NGO Instituto Maria da Penha launched
Marcas Escondidas (‘Hidden Marks’), an interactive
campaign on YouTube using squares (to imitate post-its)
consisting of lies used to cover up injuries, signs of violence
that women have suffered. The campaign used annotations
with common excuses used by women to hide the truth
behind their injuries – for example, “I was distracted and hit
my head on the kitchen cabinet.” Once the clip’s annotation
is closed, the injury then becomes visible.

Abraham Espinosa, Senior Strategic Planner at d expósito &
Partners NYC and blogger at urbanstalkers.com
“In Mexican advertising, women have been depicted as
objects (in beer campaigns and wearing bikinis) or in their
home role (as housewives). Now, they are starting to be
represented in their moments with friends, laughing about
guys, fighting for their dreams as individual rather than
with her family – it is a new sight. Smart and strong are
the new sexy.”

In July 2015, Avon launched Beleza Que Faz Sentido: a

female empowerment. These include lists of words related
to the topic, as well as articles, videos and statistics about
gender equality.
In March 2015, Avon created the 180 Line – a make-up line
sharing its name with the number for the Violence Report
and Woman Service Center. The products were empty, a
move intending to show that violence can’t be covered-up.
A magazine (inspired by the traditional Avon Sales
publication), informed readers about types of domestic
violence, how the law protects the victims and punishes
the aggressors. The magazine was distributed by Avon
Representatives, women trusted by other women, who often
have access to homes that (in many instances) not even the

(F)EMPOWERMENT

  • 1. SOUTH & CENTRAL AMERICA TREND BULLETIN (F)EMPOWERMENT It’s time to support and empower women in South & Central America NOVEMBER 2015
  • 2. You are losing women’s attention and trust while missing out on their massive buying power. If your brand isn’t communicating well with women, your brand is losing. In recent months (OK, years), many brands across South & Central America have caused controversy and attracted the wrong kind of attention with sexist advertising campaigns that have drawn widespread criticism on social networks and in public forums. For a long time, countries across the region – and industries of all varieties – have been guilty of using out-dated gender stereotypes or objectifying women to sell products and services. INTRODUCTION (F)EMPOWERMENT 2www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
  • 3. (F)EMPOWERMENT 3www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment In March 2015, Brazilian nail lacquer brand Risqué launched the Homens Que Amamos (‘Men We Love’) line of products. They featured names of men, accompanied by proud, supposedly romantic phrases, such as ‘João disse eu te amo’ (‘João said I love you’), ‘Fê mandou mensagem’ (‘Fê sent a message’) and ‘André fez o jantar’ (‘André cooked dinner’). “What makes a woman happy is not a man who thinks making dinner is the exception, but understand that this is his task as it is a woman’s task”, from Petiscos, Julia Petit’s blog from Brazil.
  • 4. (F)EMPOWERMENT 4www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment An advertising piece distributed by the Colombian energy company Codensa in March 2015 angered its users on social networks. A flyer distributed with household bills included the phrase ‘I have to ask my husband what insufficient funds means’, accompanied by an image of a woman shopping. After much controversy, the company removed all the ads from the campaign.
  • 5. (F)EMPOWERMENT 5www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment In March 2014, following multiple complaints (and a Change.org petition that attracted more than 1,500 signatures), the Puerto Rican government asked gum brand Dentyne Ice to remove an ad campaign from all subway cars. Showing a seated man, the ad read: ‘Do not give up your chair. Offer your lap. Dentyne ICE: Ready for every chance.’
  • 6. (F)EMPOWERMENT 6www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment Of course, when it comes to Latin America, beer advertising is still the most consistent offender. In February 2015, Brazilian beer brand Skol launched an advertising campaign for Carnival with phrases that mentioned a ‘lack of control’, such as ‘I accept it before learning what the question is’ and ‘I left my ‘no’ at home’. After widespread media criticism and a social media backlash, Skol removed the ads. Conti beer were another offender, accused of sexism after an ill-advised post on the brand’s Facebook page. It read ‘tenho medo de ir no bar pedir uma rodada e o garçom trazer minha ex’ (‘I’m afraid to go to a bar and order a round of beer* in case the waiter brings out my ex’), and ended with a request for suspension and a warning to the agency that conducted the campaign. *in Portuguese, the expression used for “round of beer” is the same as the one for “a woman who’s been around”
  • 7. (F)EMPOWERMENT 7www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment In Brazil, women make BRL 1.1 trillion per year and are responsible for 85% of shopping decisions. (Data Popular, September 2014) In Mexico, women are graduating from college more than men. The Asociación Nacional de Universidades e Instituciones de Educación Superior (ANUIES) revealed that the enrolment of women in graduate programs is 50.4%, while among specializations women make up 51%. The participation of women in Latin America and the Caribbean in the labor market had the largest increase among all regions globally – increasing from 40% to 54% between 1990 and 2013. (UN, April 2015) ... as consumers, students, politicians, entrepreneurs and more. Yet women across the region are becoming more empowered...
  • 8. (F)EMPOWERMENT 8www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment This is not just about being ‘politically correct’. It’s about effectively communicating with a very large proportion of your customer base. Women are not a market niche – if your brand is not talking to them properly, you are losing money. Beyond being bad for business (it has been scientifically proven that sex doesn’t sell!), misogynist messaging contributes to a more unequal and dangerous society for women. It propagates a culture that impacts the numbers of rapes, murders and cases of domestic abuse – in Brazil, for example, there’s one rape every 10 minutes (Anuário Brasileiro de Segurança Pública, 2014). To put it simply, out-dated brand messages cause more harm than hurt feelings. This means the gap between a modern woman’s reality (or at least, desired reality) in Latin America and how they are portrayed in marketing is widening. These socioeconomic changes are yet to be reflected in much of the marketing that reaches women.
  • 9. (F)EMPOWERMENT 9www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment Data Popular and Instituto Patrícia Galvão, August 2013 65% of women in Brazil don’t identify with the way they’re represented in campaigns.
  • 10. (F)EMPOWERMENT 10www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment Maria Guimarães, co-founder of Cerveja Feminista “When hypersexualized beer advertising objectifies a woman so aggressively, it’s saying to people throughout the country that a woman is an object. And an object has an owner. The man is the owner. And, as owner of the object, he can do whatever he wants with it.”
  • 11. In Latin America, women are fighting for equality in public and private life. Brands that not only avoid harmful stereotypes or objectification but also actually support women’s causes and better communicate with modern women will be loved – at the expense of those that don’t. We’ve said before – brands across the region are now expected to be part of the social tissue, to fight the same fights people are engaged in as groups or individuals. The fight for gender equality is one of these issues (in South & Central America and, of course, elsewhere in the world). More and more, if a brand is not part of the solution, it will be seen as part of the problem. It’s time to break away from gender stereotypes, communicate with women in the manner that they deserve and empower them to live the lifestyle they desire. DEFINITION (F)EMPOWERMENT 11www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
  • 13. Women face different challenges from region to region. But many share a passion for change, and inspire each other across borders. In June 2015, the “Ni Una Menos” campaign reached 110 cities in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico, as people protested against femicide. In Mexico, #NoAcosoCallejero (‘no street harassment’) took to social networks and the streets. In Puerto Rico, women created the hashtag #andandolacallesola (‘walking the streets alone’), in protest against comments by a high-ranking police officer that women should not walk alone late at night. And in January 2015, the documentary used by the Chega de Fiu Fiu campaign (against women harassment on the streets) in Brazil was funded using the crowdfunding platform Catarse. In July, the country also saw the creation of Cora Coralina, a public library focused on feminist subjects. The digitally entwined population of the world is sharing stories of repression and (F)EMPOWERMENT, from India to Iran. 1. International Sisterhood WHY NOW (F)EMPOWERMENT 13www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
  • 14. Latin America is the leader in women’s political representation. In political leadership, the region has Cristina Kirchner in Argentina, Dilma Rousseff in Brazil and Michelle Bachelet in Chile. In the NGO sector, there’s Relinda Sosa from Peru and Sandra Ramos from Nicaragua. In the world of business, María Mercedes Cuéllar is president of Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos (Felaban), Paula Santili is Senior Vice-President of PepsiCo Mexico, and Luiza Trajano is CEO of Magazine Luiza. Across the board, women in SCA are doing it for themselves. They can assume political power, run NGOs and start their own businesses (and crowdfunding platforms like Catarse, Idea.Me or Fondeadora are making this easier than ever!). Just one example of the rising power of SCA’s women? According to the latest survey by the Ministry of Economy on Entrepreneurship and Gender (March 2015), 38% of micro-entrepreneurs in Chile are female, and 40% of those are heads of household. Women are climbing higher into positions of power. 2. FEMPRENEURS and Role Models WHY NOW (F)EMPOWERMENT 14www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
  • 15. Social rules and traditions are being challenged or ignored in many societies. Individuals are forming their own singular definitions of what they seek from their own lives. Formal entities (governments or organizations) are less able to impose values or expectations. Success and status have been redefined in personal terms. Consumers are less accepting of media organizations or brands that dictate who they are and how they should behave. From sexuality to career choices, it’s up to the individual to decide. Consumers no longer let institutions dictate how they live their lives. 3. Institutional Impotence WHY NOW (F)EMPOWERMENT 15www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment
  • 16. As much as SCA’s women feel empowered, they’re also looking to brands to be partners in change. That means taking a BRAND STANDS on issues around gender prejudice. In March 2015, Cannes Festival introduced “The Lion For Change” category, rewarding actions that challenge gender stereotypes. Three out of 18 shortlisted winners were from Latin America. In Brazil, interest is growing in new ways to portray women in advertising. In August 2015, São Paulo-based Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing (ESPM) launched “Publicidade e Mulheres: um novo jeito de fazer publicidade para mulher”, a course designed to introduce marketing professionals to new ways to advertise to women. Years ago, marketing used weaknesses to try and sell products and services to women. Today, brands must offer empowerment. Consumers will embrace brands that take a stand on the issues that matter to them – such as sexism. 4. BRAND STANDS WHY NOW (F)EMPOWERMENT 16www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment

  • 27. (F)EMPOWERMENT 27www.trendwatching.com/trends/fempowerment Abraham Espinosa, Senior Strategic Planner at d expósito & Partners NYC and blogger at urbanstalkers.com “In Mexican advertising, women have been depicted as objects (in beer campaigns and wearing bikinis) or in their home role (as housewives). Now, they are starting to be represented in their moments with friends, laughing about guys, fighting for their dreams as individual rather than with her family – it is a new sight. Smart and strong are the new sexy.”

In March 2015, Avon created the 180 Line – a make-up line sharing its name with the number for the Violence Report and Woman Service Center. The products were empty, a move intending to show that violence can’t be covered-up. A magazine (inspired by the traditional Avon Sales publication), informed readers about types of domestic violence, how the law protects the victims and punishes the aggressors. The magazine was distributed by Avon Representatives, women trusted by other women, who often have access to homes that (in many instances) not even the police can gain entry to.
