DUBLIN, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Allergan today launched #ActuallySheCanSM, an innovative campaign that inspires young millennial women to achieve their professional, personal, health, wellness and societal goals.
#ActuallySheCan engages celebrities, YouTube influencers, publishers, including Cosmopolitan and Her Campus, and women's health activists to support a platform that educates, celebrates and motivates young women in a unique and authentic way to reach their full potential. By embracing the hashtag and expressing their ambitions and truths, collectively women will perpetuate a larger conversation around female achievement and well-being.
"As a leader in women's healthcare, we believe in offering women diverse healthcare choices and providing meaningful information, so that they can make educated decisions about their reproductive health. #ActuallySheCan demonstrates our commitment to deliver this education in an original and relevant way," said Bill Meury, EVP & President, U.S. Branded Pharma at Allergan. "We are honored to have a network of accomplished women, including Lea Michele, Lo Bosworth, and iJustine, join our inspiring movement."
"I attribute my personal and professional successes to not only my self-reliance and determination, but to the inspiration, education and support I received from others who helped me stay true to myself and my goals," Lea Michele states. "I am sharing my #ActuallySheCan story so I can help motivate and encourage all women to share their individual journeys and goals, so we can collectively help each other reach milestones. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing a woman leave her mark."
#ActuallySheCan represents an unprecedented new chapter in the company's long-standing commitment to women's programs, such as the philanthropic iact4womenSM initiative that supports deserving charities with a mission to help women in need.
