About #SeeHer

Led by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), the largest marketing and advertising association in the U.S.


The goal of #SeeHer is to increase the percentage of accurate portrayals of women and girls in U.S. advertising and media by 20% by 2020, the 100th anniversary of women earning the right to vote.

About GEM™

The ANA has adopted a data-tracking Gender Equality Measure (GEM™) to help identify best-in-class advertising and programming that supports girls and women.


The GEM™​ metric quantifies consumer reaction to the portrayal of women in advertising and programming.


GEM™-measured ads that portray women and girls most accurately drive increased purchase intent and brand reputation.
