Aside from my birthday, March is also a month to celebrate all women. It unites women in all walks of life that we are better, stronger, goal-getter, and we can be whatever we want to be. It reminds us that we can be as powerful as we can, while being feminine, soft and loving.
pH Care, one of the leading brands when it comes to feminine hygiene held a gallery in SM Megamall to showcased 3 Filipina artists in creating pieces that shows different issues we face as a woman and were too ashamed to discuss in the open.
pH Care, the no. 1 feminine wash brand in the country, invites Filipinas to have the courage and confidence to speak up about what they are going through. A brand every woman can count on to understand them on an intimate level, pH Care knows that proper care for ourselves, including our feminine area, starts with a talking about it freely. This International Women’s Month, the brand is launching #talktoPHCare — a call for Filipinas to start asking their questions about Feminine Care and Feminine Hygiene. Through the brand’s official website and Facebook page, girls of all ages can now have a safe and private space to ask what it takes to really care for their intimate area. Through these digital avenues, pH Care continues to show that they have #GotYouGirl!
In line with this campaign and to celebrate International Women’s Day, pH Care collaborated with 3 Filipina artists and the gallery entitle Speak Up, Girl! Displayed in SM Mega Fashion Hall, they featured artwork and photographs, showcasing their interpretation and point of view and style portraying different kinds of feminity.
Winnie Wong, a full-time graphic designer and photographer teacher, as well as the co-founder of Future Faces Manila, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students from low-income families in studying the arts.
Sara Black, a photographer renowned for her refreshed and arresting portraits of women.
Soleil Ignacio, an illustrator who is known for her glamorous and alluring illustrations of women.
Apart from their artwork, the three women, along with event host Joyce Pring, also participated in a panel discussion moderated by Lynn Pinugu of She Talks Asia. Tackling what society deems as taboo and how women should instead join together to create a space where everyone feels safe enough to raise these issues, the women shared their personal experiences of speaking up and using their art as a way to continue to do so, as well as helpful advice and messages to those who may be feeling discouraged to say something.
I'm glad pH Care saw the need for women to voice out their struggles, challenges we face everyday, how to take care of our mental health, as well. Because if we don't speak up now, when? We now live in an era where women's voice should be heard.
Kudos to pH Care for creating avenues for women to speak up.
So, if you're a mom, a tita or ate, let's encourage one another to speak up and we don't feel intimidated that you're a woman. And as a mom to two girls, it's also my responsibility to encourage my girls that they can freely ask me questions with their personal struggles and also to cheer them on that they can be whatever they want to be.
Thank you, pH Care for reminding us that being a woman is powerful.
No matter the situation and especially when it comes to feminine care, pH Care encourages you to speak up, because if you can’t talk about it, how can you take care of it?
