Campaign Description
Ariel is a leading detergent brand in India, but it was suffering from loss of emotional equity and relevance. Specifically, consumers saw it as a brand ‘not for people like me’. The client brief was clear – get the attention of and engage our consumers around Ariel’s promise of ‘best stain removal in one wash so that anyone can do laundry’ to make the brand more relevant.Here we unearthed an interesting statistic: ‘87% of Indian men believe laundry is a woman's job’. Deeper analysis into this pointed us to an inequality embedded culturally in each and every Indian home… where women can be equal contributors to the family income, but the burden of household chores still lies on their shoulders.With this understanding Ariel decided to stand up for women’s equality at home with ‘Share the Load’ – a provocative social movement that exposed the inequality embedded culturally in each and every Indian home. But our challenge was to reach out to men and women in places where our message would create maximum impact as well as get talked about in media. Here is where we saw the opportunity to turn an ignored, but important part of the garment – the wash care label – into an advocate for gender-equality at home with Ariel’s #ShareTheLoad wash-care labels. It wasn’t just embraced by garment manufacturers, retailers and designers; it also caught the attention of the media who covered it and the message of gender equality at home behind it.
Client Brief Or Objective
Our goal was to drive relevance of Airel. Most importantly, make women see the brand as a brand ‘for people like me’.A detailed research with Nielsen amongst our target group – urban women – pointed us to an inequality embedded in each and every Indian home. An inequality at home where household chores, including laundry was thought of as a woman’s job in spite of her working outside the home and contributing equally to household income.

Execution
We kicked off the movement with an ad that asked an important question – ‘why is laundry a woman’s job?’ This provocative message sparked conversation. But our challenge was to reach out to men and women in ways where our message would create maximum impact as well as get talked about in media.Here is where we saw the opportunity to turn an ignored, but important part of the garment – the wash care label – into an advocate for gender-equality at home with Ariel’s #ShareTheLoad wash-care labels. It wasn’t just embraced by garment manufacturers, retailers and designers; it also caught the attention of the media who covered it and the message of gender equality at home behind it.
Relevancy

We did this with #ShareTheLoad - a provocative social-movement that exposed the inequality embedded culturally in each Indian home.But our challenge was to reach out to men and women in places where our message would create maximum impact as well as get talked about in media. Here is where we saw the opportunity to turn an ignored, but important part of the garment – the wash care label – into an advocate for gender-equality at home for Ariel’s #ShareTheLoad.
Strategy
The target audience for Ariel is the urban woman – the performance seeker. She is a woman for whom achieving perfection is key, be it in what she does in the office or at home with her household chores. She is the one who is responsible for doing the laundry and choosing Ariel as her detergent. While this may be so, there is an inequality embedded culturally in each and every Indian home that affects them… where women can be equal contributors to the family income, but the burden of household chores still lies on their shoulders.In this context, to make the brand more relevant to these women, Ariel spoke to both them and their husbands. It stood up against the inequality at home. Our strategy was to use PR as a vehicle to create a nation conversation and debate.
