Executive summary

In India, a woman dies every two hours due to an unsafe abortion. Often women don't have decision-making power in matters of contraception – it is for the men to decide and they avoid using condoms as it diminishes pleasure.

i-can, a leading contraceptive brand, set out to sensitise men to the issue with the idea of Fair Sex Fair Say. The irrationality of men's justifications was brought to life with a stark execution that made women the spokespersons. We asked people to pledge their support by using #FairSexFairSay and directed them to icanhelp.in.
