In this Presidential election season there has been an all-out wrestling match for the woman’s vote. Why? The reason they are fighting so hard is because; in today’s world woman have risen up and taken a prominent leadership role in their families and society in general.
Woman are much more prominent in society they:
- have more buying power
- are increasingly the decision makers
- are shaping policy both in social settings and in business
Many businesses are still marketing in ways that do not take this into account. It is a world that many men are finding it hard to relate.
Recently, the CEO of a company that manufactures feminine hygiene products took offense to a social media post that she did not agree with. Here is one of the best responses I have seen to a social attack on marketing ever.
