Hershey is making good use of its own name for International Women's Day, launching a campaign in Brazil that includes the creation of "Her" and "She" chocolate bars—with packaging celebrating great women musicians, illustrators and other artists.
BETC São Paulo created the campaign, which highlights illustrators Ana Flávia (@affnana) and Alessandra Lemos (@loleland), writer Luiza Mussnich (@luizamussnich), poet Camila Lordelo (@euliricas), and musicians Yzalú (@yzalu) and Bruna Mendez (@brunamendez). The packaging features work from the artist in question; and Yzalú and Bruna Mendez's packaging includes QR codes linking to their current singles.

Yzalú also narrates this film promoting the campaign. A version with an English-language voiceover is below.
"International Women's Day is marked by the struggle of women for their rights," says Ana Costa, HR director at Hershey Brazil. "Having this in mind is crucial when sharing experiences with our employees, to assure they know they're working for a company that acknowledges their value and believes in their potential."
Hershey says 52 percent of its leadership is female, including Michele Buck, global CEO. BETC São Paulo also has majority female leadership.
"Women have increasingly conquered space in the world. However, this is a theme that can't leave the agenda," says Andrea Siqueira, the agency's executive creative director. "It's really gratifying to work with a brand that understands the importance of stimulating conversation about this, doing a campaign that values female talent."
Hershey is encouraging other women artists to share their work in social media. Posts tagged #HerShe and #HerSheGallery could have their posts shared by the brand.
