WATCH: Always Like A Girl

What does it mean to “do something like a girl”? When did ‘like a girl’ become an insult? Watch this video and tell us what you think!

This thought provoking video aired during Super Bowl XLIX.

For young girls, confidence plummets during puberty and many never fully recover. Always is on an epic battle to end that by changing the meaning of the phrase “like a girl” from an insult to mean downright amazing things.

Their original film has started to change perceptions. But that’s not enough. We need to reach more girls, women, boys and men—to spread the word big time.

Together, we can all empower our young girls, and change the meaning of #LikeAGirl to be the ultimate compliment.

Take a stand. Join our movement. Together, let’s make #LikeAGirl mean amazing things.

For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls.
