How many amazing, world-class female creatives can you name? (Go ahead, post them in the comments section, I’m curious.) Not just good female creatives, but Cannes-jury-level female creatives. Off-hand, I can think of four or five. And a couple of them aren’t really in the business anymore. I know there are more. But unfortunately, they don’t come as easily to mind.
There are lots of women in advertising. But not on the creative side. At least not in my experience. If you’re a female writer or art director, I hope you can change that. I hope you can put your stamp on the industry. Here’s a list to get you inspired. It’s The 30 Most Creative Women In Advertising according to Business Insider.
Go through the list. See how many of these women you already know. You probably already know their work. See what they do, and how they do it. Then, go do it yourself.
Guys, you may want to pay attention, too.
