Ever been told that you hit, run or do things like a girl? If you have, chances are it hasn’t been meant as a compliment.

#LikeAGirl is a new campaign by Always, the feminine hygiene brand owned by Proctor & Gamble, and they’re redefining what the phrase “like a girl” means. Directed by award-winning documentary maker, Lauren Greenfield, she asks men and women of various ages what it means to do certain things like a girl. While most demonstrate or consider it to be an insult, the young girls demonstrate these actions with purpose and strength; they don’t see it as an insult at all.

Aside from the clever use of marketing (this video has already gone viral), they’ve highlighted and tapped into a far greater issue – the impact this general phrase has on an adolescent girl’s self-confidence.

It’s time to change the phrase “like a girl” from a negative comment to a celebration and something that esteems and builds.

“You are incredible.
You are unstopabble.
And you do things #likeagirl.”

In the words of one of the girls in the video, “Why can’t run ‘like a girl’ also mean ‘win the race’?” Word.

What do you do like a girl? Be proud and comment below.

PS: Join the movement. Hashtag #likeagirl on social media to spread the amazing things you do like a girl.

  1. I loved this video! It took me back to a time in middle school where p.e. was not fun because everything I did was #likeagirl. But like that one girl said at the end, “Why can’t run like a girl mean winning the race?” BOOM! Love this! xo – Jessika
