P&G And Shopee Collaborate To Encourage Fair Division Of Household Chores In Latest #ChallengeTheChores Campaign

Since Covid-19, 75% of caregiving chores have fallen on women

Procter & Gamble, a leading fast-moving consumer goods company, partnered with leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia Shopee, to launch its latest campaign, as part of this year’s International Women’s Day. Titled #ChallengeTheChores, this campaign responds to the global call for us to challenge gender stereotypes, by fostering a sense of joint responsibility within the household, and encouraging family members to team up and tackle household chores together. 

The campaign will be progressively launched across five Southeast Asian markets including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam, featuring a series of challenges that aim to inspire families to take on household chores together, such as doing the laundry and attending to a child’s needs.

Since Covid-19, 75% of caregiving chores have fallen on women¹, with a number of extra responsibilities and commitments added on to their already busy lives. To further illustrate the importance of addressing this need of shared responsibility, the campaign will feature a video of how household chores can be equally divided and tackled together.

Alexandra Vogler, P&G e-commerce Senior Director, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, said, “P&G is deeply committed to equality and inclusion. Through this campaign we want to raise awareness of the imbalanced distribution of chores. Through an entertaining short film and an interactive, gamified experience, we hope to inspire people to #ChallengeTheChores and drive greater equality within households.”

In addition, Shopee found that women are the most active shoppers on the platform in product categories such as household and other fast-moving consumer goods. As e-commerce becomes more prevalent, Shopee looks to leverage its platform to encourage meaningful conversations through a fun, personalised and interactive experience for customers.

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director at Shopee, said, “We are proud to partner with P&G, a world leading FMCG brand, on this meaningful initiative. Besides encouraging families to take on equal responsibilities of household chores, we also seek to provide our users with a wide assortment of products to make tackling everyday household chores convenient and  manageable. We look forward to launching more of such engaging campaigns with P&G that would enrich the shopping experience for our users.”

During the campaign period, shoppers in each market can look forward to various activities and exclusive content that will inspire the whole family and help them rediscover the fun of tackling household chores together. These include livestreams featuring Key Opinion Leaders on their personal challenges when tackling household chores and how they teamed up with their partners to overcome those challenges, exclusive in-app activities to snatch up special deals and win prizes, and the classic Shopee Catch game to collect as many P&G products giveaway or vouchers as possible.
