Ahead of the annual Holi Festival in India, Reliance General Insurance rolled out a campaign that hopes to raise awareness of a stark truth, in an effort to create a safer festival for women.
Created by Ogilvy & Mather, the ‘#HoliNotHooliganism’ campaign puts the spotlight on an often ignored reality that men take the opportunity to harass, grope and molest women under the guise of colour.
The campaign centres around three print ads that show two images side by side – the first a colourful image of Holi alongside another highlighting the reality which often hides beneath the colour once stripped away.

Read it and wipe… That’s literally what Neutrogena Brazil advised readers of Caras Magazine to do when they received a free sample of its Deep Clean wipes with their magazine recently.
To give consumers a deeper connection with the product, this was so much more than just a free sample as readers were able to remove the make-up from actress Giovanna Ewbank’s face on the front cover of the magazine by wiping it using the accompanying freebie.
Agency DM9DDB was behind the interactive front cover - an innovative and hands-on approach to print advertising where readers could actually see the product in action and experience it for themselves.

These new ads from Swiss human rights group Terre Des Femmes make a pretty bold and powerful statement about gender equality and feminism, by reminding us that a woman’s worth should not be measured by the length of her skirt or the height of her heels…
Released on Facebook earlier this week, the ads depict a faceless woman’s body, with an added layer of measurements printed on top ranging from ‘prude’ to ‘whore’. The campaign slogan simply states: ‘Don’t measure a woman’s worth by her clothes’.

Check out all three ads in the series below and let us know what you think.
