Godrej Appliances 

Conceptualized by WAT Consult, this women’s day, Godrej Appliances launches a campaign encouraging women to question the prevalent label of ‘housewife’ in our society. It underscores how even women use the labels for themselves without realizing that it is underselling them and hardly does justice to her role and her skills.  The film begins with a social media savvy teenager, who urges her mother to join in a social media community. Despite her mother’s initial reluctance, the teenager starts creating an online profile for her and poses her questions like her profession, skills etc. While doing so, the teenager points out how her mother – who perceives herself to be just a housewife lacking real skills, is in truth, so multiskilled. It beautifully captures the nuances of a mother-daughter relationship while seeding in a new thought of changing our labels, “#HomemakerNotHousewife.
