SHELTON, Conn., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2016, being a woman is all about speaking freely. From breaking down glass ceilings, to proclamations of feminism, women are speaking up about topics that affect their world. While 63% of women are comfortable discussing some feminine care issues with friends, there are still topics like sweating and bladder leaks that are off limits, according to a national survey by Carefree® completed by 1,000 women ages 25 to 54.
To inspire women to speak freely about all of their feminine care issues, Carefree® has partnered with actresses and moms Tia Mowry and Ana Ortiz, to deliver confidence to women, and ask them to share their stories – no matter the topic. Whether it's experiencing body changes as a new mom, or receiving an unexpected visitor during date night, Carefree® wants to help women feel like they can speak freely about handling whatever life brings, including feminine hygiene concerns.
"As an actress and mom, I've experienced plenty of unexpected moments," said Tia Mowry. "I'm excited to partner with Carefree® as part of their Speak Freely campaign, which encourages women to embrace life's little surprises."
Carefree®, Tia Mowry and Ana Ortiz are also encouraging women to share their own stories on handling life's unexpected moments by launching a Speak Freely video series and hosting a national contest on www.speakfreelywithcarefree.com.1 Women across the country will have a chance to share their own stories and could be selected to win a trip for two to Los Angeles or New York City (winner's choice) for 4 nights and 5 days!
As the brand that helps women around the world feel confidently fresh and prepared to make the most of each day, Carefree® Liners offer discreet feminine protection so thin, soft and absorbent, you'll hardly notice it's there.
