In August 2019, Reebok rolled out a really cool campaign.

Their campaign, ‘It’s A Man’s World’, was for a re-release of 3 classic sneaker styles and 2 tee-shirts, and it featured 5 superwomen who are breaking up gender stereotypes in their respective male-dominated industries. But more importantly, ‘It’s A Man’s World’ showcased Reebok’s latest initiative: a creative platform celebrating female empowerment. The message of this campaign honors the zeitgeist of today and is downright empowering. Plus, the 5 women featured are objectively phenomenal.

San Francisco native. Media Design Major. And now, Oblique intern. These are three things that define me. So how did I get here? Boulder has always had my heart since I was a little girl. My Grandpa and Grandma met here way back when Robert Redford worked at The Sink.
