Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any
adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence.
Always kicked off an epic campaign to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.
Yesterday, when I was on instagram, someone posted this photo (you see in my post) and the caption was, “in highschool when I played soccer i was quick – for a girl. I got asked to be on the track team ( I denied it, now I wish I did) shortly after is when I quit soccer…”, this really irritated me. After seeing Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign I take offense to the statement “like a girl”. When is it ever said in a positive manner? Can you tell me the last time you heard someone utter those words in a positive light? If you can, I would love to hear about it.
Check out the #LikeAGirl campaign video below and give me your thoughts. Let’s turn this statement around! Snaps to Always for claiming it wants to improve young girls’ self-esteem.
