If you can see her, you can be her.

Despite recent advances, an unconscious bias persists against women and girls in advertising, media, and programming. To address this, the ANA launched the SeeHer movement in partnership with The Female Quotient (TFQ) in 2016.

SeeHer’s mission is to accurately portray all women and girls in marketing, advertising, media and entertainment so they see themselves as they truly are and in all their potential. The average age, race, body type and other aspects of women's identity depicted in media represent just a small fraction of the female population.


Gender Equality Measure

In 2016, SeeHer developed the Gender Equality Measure®, the first data-driven methodology for identifying gender bias in media. Today, GEM® is used to increase effectiveness and boost ROI in 14 markets around the world and has become the global industry standard for measuring gender bias in ads and programming.

SeeHer members represent more than 2,000 brands and $70 billion in ad spend. Through deeper access to GEM®, proprietary research, tools and toolkits, best practices guides, media partnership opportunities, customized workshops, and other benefits, these members are setting the gender equality agenda for the industry and driving growth for their brand and their businesses.
