Gillette It Takes a Real Man

June 04, 2019Filed under Film and Health, Beauty

A study has revealed that “75% of Spanish men do not identify with the traditional male stereotype”. 8/10 Spanish men have been hearing about what makes a “Real Man” throughout their lives, but only one in four identifies with these expectations. What does it mean to be a “real man”? How is a real man supposed to behave? These and other questions are the starting point for “"It takes a real man””, a study sponsored by Gillette that explores the meaning of masculinity and how it is evolving in Spain. The study reveals that 75% of men do not identify with traditional masculine stereotypes and intend to bring up their children based on a more progressive, positive concept. This analysis of Spanish men prompted Gillette to develop a new line of communication that extolled the positive values of masculinity and rejected the negative ones. The result was the "It takes a real man” campaign (, based on the Spanish male stereotype. (there are English subtitles in the youtube settings option)
