Echo of an Interesting Woman

ECHO OF AN INTERESTING WOMAN

In honor of our 95th Anniversary, we are bringing back our iconic 1970s campaign The Echo of an Interesting Woman. Reimagined for a new era, the #InterestingWoman campaign celebrates women who are making a difference in the world around them - today's visionaries, trendsetters and trailblazers who ignite our creativity and inspire us daily. Over the next month we will introduce you to nine women who embody this campaign, all in their own ways. Let's meet them!

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Echo has been empowering women to express their individuality since 1923. To honor our 95th Anniversary and Women’s History Month, we are putting a distinctly modern spin on our iconic “The Echo of an Interesting Woman” campaign from the 1970s. Take a step back in time and explore the inspiration behind this journey.
