“There are women and girls everywhere who exhibit strength and resilience in their lives, and that’s the inspiration behind the Brawny #StrengthHasNoGender campaign,” Frances Morgan, senior brand manager at G-P, said in a statement.

This year marks the second consecutive year that Brawny has taken part in the initiative, but it’s the first time the burly Brawny man has been replaced on their packaging.
