McDonald’s has turned its golden arches upside down to make an interesting statement.

McDonald’s, a global fast-food giant, made a bold move on International Women’s Day, 2018, by flipping its iconic golden arches to a ‘W’. This gesture aimed to celebrate women’s achievements globally. Despite initial speculation, McDonald’s clarified that it wasn’t related to any dispute but a tribute to women everywhere.

The symbolic change wasn’t just limited to signage; it extended to uniforms and packaging in 100 locations across the US. Chief Diversity Officer Wendy Lewis emphasized the significance: “To celebrate the remarkable achievements of women everywhere… we flipped our iconic arches… for the first time in our brand’s history.”

McDonald’s highlighted its commitment to empowering women in the workplace, boasting that six out of ten restaurant managers in the US are women. This move echoes a broader trend of corporations promoting gender equality and women’s rights.

Johnnie Walker, for instance, launched a “Jane Walker” bottle, donating a portion of sales to women’s rights charities. Stephanie Jacoby, VP of Johnnie Walker, stressed the importance of gender conversations, aligning with their mission.

Brawny also contributed, donating to Girls, Inc. and replacing its mascot with a woman. These initiatives underscore a growing corporate effort to support gender equality and celebrate women’s achievements.
