The campaign video shot by Collier Schorr, can be found on the Adidas site, shows women of all ethnicities and different backgrounds gathered around Pharrell Williams wearing all black and the new shoe collection in support the movement. In the video, A woman plays with her children, a model breastfeeds a child and another model shows off her baby bump. Some voiceovers in the background express how women have the rights to make their own decisions on their bodies and promote gender equality.
