Today is International Women’s Day! That means get out and appreciate the women in your life. Under Armour is doing just that with its “I’m Pretty” campaign.
“You’re so pretty is still pretty much the highest compliment some people think you can give a women. Which is pretty sad…you’re more than a pretty face. You’re pretty strong, pretty tough, pretty fierce, pretty smart, pretty bold. Show the world how you’re more than just a pretty face.”
You can share your I’m Pretty statement using #ImPretty and tagging @underarmourwomen on Instagram and @UAWomen on Twitter.
For International Women’s Day, Under Armour is selling I’m Pretty graphic t-shirts that can be personalized with permanent marker. They’re constructed of fast-drying Charged Cotton, utilize UA’s Moisture Transport System to wick sweat, and are priced at $30 each. You can check the I’m Pretty tee here.
It’s 2017, and that means women are more than pretty faces. Under Armour has a great track record of giving its female athletes like Natasha Hastings and Misty Copeland a platform to get their voices heard. Moreover, UA has been bringing innovative product to women for years now — and not just in fluorescent colors. Oh, and I know some pretty fierce and badass women that work for Under Armour.
Enjoy the images of UA’s campaign for International Women’s Day. Below, I’ve included some important statistics people should read for this month.
