#AxThePinkTax

Agency: Laundry Service

Description

By the age of 30, the average woman is charged an extra $40,000 because of the Pink Tax, which is the extra amount of money women are charged for everyday products and services. It's real and it's everywhere....and to take action, European Wax Center (EWC) is launching the next phase of its Clio award-winning #AxThePinkTax campaign to raise awareness about this gender price discrimination.
Year two of this 360 campaign takes the brand's efforts one step further and encourages women everywhere to take active steps to claim their worth. From driving awareness to providing women with the information and tools they need to take action, European Wax Center is igniting a movement that is making the Pink Tax impossible to miss.
Inclusive of social and digital content, OOH, live events, an influencer program, an in-center take over across 700+ locations, and a new dedicated website -- complete with a birthday calculator so that women everywhere can see how much the Pink Tax has cost them to date -- among other components, the campaign unapologetically calls out the absurdity of The Pink Tax and debunks anyone doubting the real-ness of this issue by showing gendered price discrepancies that follow women their entire lives, “from cradle to cane.”

This professional campaign titled '#AxThePinkTax' was published in United States in April, 2019. It was created for the brand: European Wax Center, by ad agency: Laundry Service. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Beauty industry and contains 3 media assets. It was submitted over 3 years ago.
