Utilizing Refinery 29's 29 Rooms tour, we created a star-studded lineup of comedians, doctors and ambassadors to end the taboo and stigma surrounding menopause.

My Role

Research

Interviews

Campaign Strategy

Concept Creation

Background:

Women have rights of passage like when they start their first period, or bare a child, but for many menopause can feel like end the road. While women may discuss menopause with their doctors or close friends, many still feel alone.

HOW WE LANDED ON

We thought of what could be a unique way to get more people talking about menopause

RSVP

The insight:

Humor removes the barriers between the head and the heart.

There is an unspoken societal norm that makes no topic off-limits with comedy and entertainment. 

Opportunity:

We can make menopause a key item and bring the topic to light. Since menopause is affecting millions of people every year, the issue is not just for her. We can allow open conversation to share experiences in order to empathize with others.

Campaign Strategy:

End the cycle of silence around menopause, one laugh at a time. 

 

It is time to let everyone else in on the joke. 

The Creative:

Website Landing Page & Mobile App Mockup:
