Asmita Arya

TopSocial’s recently launched content platform, Bored Games, gathered over 100k+ views and 200+ entries for its Women’s Day campaign, #OooWomaniyaar, that aimed at puncturing stereotypes and casual sexism with short format content on Instagram.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, TopSocial’s recently launched content platform, Bored Games, decided to do what women do every day- call out problematic stereotypes- to help peddle an empowering message. Under the umbrella campaign, titled #OooWomaniyaar Bored Games crafted its original audio, from Gangs of Wasseypur’s song, ‘O Womaniya’, for the reel format on Instagram and also launched an engaging contest to drive a conversation on gender roles and puncturing stereotypes.

The Women’s Day campaign invited women from all walks of life - be it creators, working professionals, and college-going among others- to create content, borrowing substance from their own experiences. With the aim to advocate content that empowers and entertains, the campaign kick-started an original trend where women took a dig at the hypocrisy of gender norms, roles and stereotypes, in a creative manner.
