You look “Marvelous”! That’s what “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is saying to women-led companies and organizations in New York and Los Angeles as part of its latest Emmy campaign. Amazon has created 11 installations, each with an eight-foot display of block letters spelling out “Marvelous” in front of businesses and locations representative of female empowerment. Those installations went up on June 12 and will remain up for a week. That coincides with Emmy voting, which started on June 11 and ends on June 25.
“The character Midge Maisel is a strong, talented woman who strikes out on her own to forge a new path, and in the spirit of ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ we are excited to shine a light on other fantastic, entrepreneurial women,” said Amazon’s head of marketing Mike Benson in a statement. “We hope that this campaign will inspire others to find their unique voice.”
The women being spotlighted by the campaign are Cecile Richards, the former president of Planned Parenthood; Lizz Winstead, the creator of “The Daily Show” and founder of Lady Parts Justice League; Whitney Wolfe Herd, founder of the female-driven dating app Bumble; Reshma Saujani, who strives to close the gender gap in tech as the founder of the nonprofit Girls Who Code; Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, founders of theSkimm; Katie Rosen Kitchens, the founder of FabFitFun; Payal Kadakia, founder of ClassPass; Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, founders of the hospitality company the Lucques Group; Florence Shin and Athina Wang, founders of Covry; and Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson, founders of the Kind Campaign.
“Mrs. Maisel” is a period comedy that follows the life of its title character (played by Rachel Brosnahan), who embarks on a stand-up comedy career in the 1950s after her husband suddenly leaves her. It was created, written, directed and produced by another accomplished woman, Amy Sherman-Palladino, who previously created the series “Gilmore Girls.”
