[Ladies' Week] Inspirational Ads
Ok. I usually don't like ads.

But when it comes to sports ads, especially inspirational sports ads, I love watching them. I would sometimes go on YouTube just to watch motivational sports commercials over and over again.


Well, once again, in celebration of Ladies' Week, I want to share some of my favorite sports commercials with y'all. Sit back and let's get pumped!

1. Nike - Better For It


This ad's main message is to support women on their athletic journeys. We all have our own insecurities when it comes to working out. However, this particular campaign empowers women to be better through inspiration and motivation to push to the next level. It's so motivating and it also sends message to the rest of the world that there is no such thing as masculine or feminine when it comes to exercising. Everyone is equal and everyone has the power to turn "can't" into "can".

2. Always - Like A Girl


This ad is definitely one of the most powerful ads I've ever seen in my life. Due to the stereotypes that exist in society, girls may lose confidence as they grow older. The rest of society could also be bound by these types of stereotypes. But this commercial can change the perceptions that people have of the phrase, "like a girl". It also has inspired me to take part in this campaign and change the phrase "like a girl" from an insult to something positive.

3. P&G - Thank You Mom


Moms are the best. Even though I have not yet been a parent, I always get a bit misty when I watch this ad. A powerful element in this commercial is that athletes are not the focus here. Instead, the focus is on the dedicated moms that pick them back up when they fall. Of course, we cannot forget about all the dads around the world, but let me say this one more time: moms are the best!
Well, another shoutout to @shannonl5 for planning this awesome event and you guys should all join if you still haven't heard about it yet!

The Like A Girl campaign was HUGE, and I loved it so much, especially since I was really into sports growing up. I could really relate to the message.
Y'all don't understand how much I love the always - like a girl commercial. I know about the standards that are place on us, women/girls, but it made me realize just how much society expects of us. And to see the diff between how women portray theirselves vs how young girls portray theirselves I feel it makes a huge impact in getting the point across. We shouldn't have to act according to how society's ideas of women.
Are. We should have the freedom to act tom boyish and get dirty and all the extra that isn't considered girly.
@danidee Yeah I really hope people start to think differently about the phrase, "like a girl"!
@DasiaB I totally agree with you! Even the word "girly" shouldn't mean anything! How can we group all girls together and define how they should act? They are all different individuals and they should have the freedom to act in any way they want and not be restricted due to gender norms!
