McDonald's + INternational women's day

Millions of women have chosen McDonald's to be a part of their story. The challenge: how do we break through the chatter to recognize and celebrate every woman on International Women's Day?

By flipping the iconic golden arches to a "W" at 100 female-owned locations along with an entire restaurant in California.

In 100 female-owned stores across the country, customers were able to take home rebranded fry boxes, bags and cups.

We flipped every logo across McDonald's social and digital channels to celebrate across the globe.

Crew members at participating female-owned McDonald's across the United States sported hats and shirts displaying the 'W,' bringing our celebration front and center at every purchase.

A landing page was created to commemorate the day which included brief biographies celebrating a diverse group of women who have chosen the brand to be a part of their story.
