Sorry we're not sorry. Be Strong And Shine

In its latest ad, Pantene urges women to stop with all the apologizing. The one-minute spot shows several common occasions of women using the word "sorry," from asking questions in the workplace to asking for help with the kids.

The ad then replays the same vignettes — this time with assertive, confident and unapologetic responses. The message encourages women to "be strong and shine."

Pantene's recent ad campaigns have sought to shine a spotlight on gender inequality. Last December, its "Labels Against Women" ad from the Philippines went viral, reaching 46 million YouTube views, for highlighting how identical actions of men and women in the workplace were ultimately perceived differently.

"This problem of saying sorry, it wasn't just something women in the U.S. were facing but globally. After the success of the first campaign, Shine Strong is something we're committed to as a brand."
