This campaign by Always is meant to show the world what it truly means to so something "Like A Girl" I found this really empowering, and hope other girls here on Vingle do to! Spread the love! PS: What do you guys do "like a girl?" "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. We're kicking off an epic battle 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. "In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand," said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. "When the words 'like a girl' are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine 'like a girl' into a positive affirmation." For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls."

Honestly, if someone asked me to "throw like a girl" I probably would have reacted with the stereotype :/
I love seeing female athletes be so fierce about the "like a girl" thing. My roommate was a killer softball player, I'd love to be able to throw like that girl!
Really inspiring :)
These are the kind of stereotypes that stunt the growth of girls into being the strong women that can go against this kind of #likeagirl statement!
I also hate hearing "he dances like a girl!" as if boys can't dance beautifully, too!
