She Should Run
She Should Run, a non-partisan non-profit dedicated to expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders to help motivate more women and girls to explore leadership opportunities, partnered with Mattel to launch the first-ever all-female ticket: President and Vice President Barbie. She Should Run wanted to use the moment of a presidential campaign to help girls and women envision themselves in public office, and teamed up with SKDK to develop a strategic launch and ensure that their mission was not lost among the Barbie news.
SKDK executed a strategic media plan to craft a compelling narrative of She Should Run and its co-founder and CEO, Erin Loos Cutraro. The plan included drafting op-eds, securing earned media and press drops of the Barbie set to top-tier media, select influencers, and female congresswomen and senators on the hill, all while working closely with Mattel’s executive communication team.
Overall, the campaign generated nearly 8 million media impressions in addition to over 300,000 social media impressions. SKDK secured two op-eds in Fortune and TIME Motto, in addition to hits in top national outlets such as the Washington Post, USA Today, Forbes, Bustle, Babble, the Huffington Post, Yahoo!, Refinery29, Cosmopolitan, PopSugar and more to help continue the discussion of women in political leadership positions.
