for the record i added forced to this. we could say encouraged but there is a similar thread where a letter was supposed force so i guess this is too.


just pointing this out because people writing letters and/or companies changing their slogans to satisfy their customer base is nothing new despite all the people crying about it.

this was 1993

www.fox19.com...


Meghan Markle may have encouraged Procter & Gamble to change the tagline to an advertisement for dishwashing liquid when she was 11, according to a speech she gave for UN Women on International Women's Day in 2015.



"I remember feeling shocked and angry and also just feeling so hurt. It just wasn't right and something needed to be done," she said in the speech.

She told her father about the incident, and he encouraged Markle to make her voice heard.



"He encouraged me to write letters, so I did, to the most powerful people I could think of," she said, which included Hillary Clinton, civil rights lawyer Gloria Allred, journalist Linda Ellerbee, and Procter & Gamble.
About a month later, Procter & Gamble made the tagline gender-neutral, changing "Women all over America" to, "People all over America."


those crazy kids and their letters. they sure have a way of 'forcing' companies to bend to their every whim.

this is nothing new. people/children used to be encouraged to use their voice. write your congressman. write you mayor.
be heard.

this happened 25 years ago.

nothing new. nothing to do with fake news. libs. sjw.

sometimes people use their voice and sometimes change happens because of it.

for some reason though these days that seems to be a bad thing.
i guess we are jut supposed to shut up and conform. it is very confusing.

so what is so wrong about using your voice?
what is so wrong about writing a letter if something bothers you?

The real problem is when stupid people make their voices heard and others listen. There is far too much virtue signaling and SJW BS these days.

is it in current events?
is it in braking news?

it definitely fits with social issues based on things that are happening now
i said so in the first few lines of the thread
maybe you should read it instead of just following me around trying to start #

the point is people bitch about this stuff and claim it is a new thing and that it did not happen years ago

i am showing people that it did

maybe read the thread and try to have an actual discussion?
ever think of that?

I did read it and I still find it stupid, it seems to me that you like the attention, why else would you post these drama queen stories?

These days? You mean like, 1993? What wouldn’t be considered “these days” to you? Cavemen times?

I also like how you added "forced" for dramatic effect.

Yeah I believe that
lol lol I mean seriously?

My biggest gripe with the modern age is minority talking for the majority. Or basically idiots finding outrage where there isn't. I just doubt this happened. Maybe she did write letters but yeah the fact that she is taking credit for the change is hilarious and oh she just so happened to be a princess later? Yh not buying.

Just the skeptic in me is all. I don't believe the claim but who knows I could be wrong and she could be telling the gods honest truth although I doubt it.

Virtue signalling.

#doublepost

But I suppose I could illustrate that it was Meghan Markle's #MeToo moment when it comes to how she wrote letters and got slogans changed. It's just that it wasn't virtuous back then like it is now, so she never talked about it before.
