Friday, the 23rd saw the women of Bangalore manning up to sport the moustache.
Wooplr launched The Moustache Campaign as an attempt to amalgamate fashion and social awareness using the moustache as a symbol of a free and equal woman, who isn’t held down by societal constraints or clichéd stereotypes.
Part of the campaign was The Moochie Walk which was organised on Church Street and Brigade Road this Friday. Participant women walked along the streets, shopped and went about their regular agenda while sporting the moustache. heads turned, people whispered and crowds tittered. The walk actually reinforced that it’s only when one asks questions that gender stereotypes can be broken and myths are busted. The why’s and how’s of the status quo for women were discussed with passersby and the fever caught on. The whole street did sport the moustache - men, women and children.
We had businesses participating in the campaign as well. Coconut Grove, Krispy Kreme and The Only Place joined the campaign with much enthusiasm to sport the moustache. Sponsors Cupcakery and Liqaish made the walk that much more fun with chocolates and cupcakes.
All in all it does seem like it’s only with a bit of humour that one can look at leveling these long prevalent societal concerns. for those of you who missed out on the walk, we have put together a quick collection of snapshots.
Take a look at the Moochie Walk through the Wooplr lens:
