"Like a Girl" Campaign

I'm sure you've already seen this ad campaign about "Like a Girl." If you haven't, though, please take the three minutes to watch it.

When you watch, please recognize that girls hear this message, and they internalize it. They see themselves through messages like these as they try to figure out what it means to be female.

Please don't say this message to my daughter, even if it's only meant in jest. I don't want her to know that "like a girl" means poorly performing. I want her to know that she can truly be anything she wants to be and do it anyway she wants to do it.

These statements can be made in fun but still touch a nerve. We must bolster up girls and women. Check out the Dove commercials, too.
