Pantene's Anti-Sexism Shampoo Commercial Comes to the U.S.

The Pantene ad where a woman with thick, shiny hair encounters workplace sexism is coming to the U.S.

The spot, titled “Labels Against Women,” launched on Nov. 9 in the Philippines, but quickly went viral worldwide after Sheryl Sandberg wrote (on Facebook, naturally) that it was “one of the most powerful videos I have seen.” Procter & Gamble, Pantene’s parent company, has begun purchasing ad space for it in U.S., which means that if you’re one of the millions of people who’ve seen it online, you’ll probably see it again on TV.
