- Move over, Brawny Man. The iconic Brawny man logo has been replaced by a woman from Atlanta as part of the #StrengthHasNoGender campaign.

"There are women and girls everywhere who exhibit strength and resilience in their lives, and that's the inspiration behind the Brawny #StrengthHasNoGender campaign," Frances Morgan, senior brand manager at Georgia-Pacific, said in a statement.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Brawny Towels has replaced the image of the Brawny man with Vernice Armour, thecountry’s first African American female combat pilot, who served in the Marines for two tours in Iraq and three other women, who are breaking down barriers and empowering others to pursue their dreams.

Armour was also a police officer, professional football player, and back-to-back winner of Camp Pendleton’s Strongest Warrior Competition.
