Always Be Unstoppable! #LikeAGirl

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

The other day I overheard a conversation between a few young children. The one girl said she could not do something. The only said she could. The boy also told her she could. I really did not know what they were talking about, it was something on the playground at my daughter’s school. But what made my ears perk up was when the one girl stated she could not do it because she was a girl. As sad as this was, it was nice to hear her friends supporting her. Both the boy and girl told her she just needed to try. Being a girl did not mean she was unable to do it. Girls can do whatever they put their mind to. Girls and boys both can be strong, brave, successful and champions.

Having two girls myself I am always telling them they are smart, strong, funny and perfect. They can do whatever they set their mind to and they can succeed. My boys agree 100% and tell them the same thing. I know many do not get this kind of encouragement but they should.

Does society limit girls and tell them what they should or shouldn’t be?

Do you think they box them into expected roles? Always wants every girl to stay confident

Take a look at this video below and share with the girls in your life. Rewrite the rules!

Always, a brand that has been championing girls’ confidence for more than 30 years, is on a mission to help stop the drop in confidence girls experience at puberty and beyond. As part of this mission, in 2014 they set out to make the phrase “like a girl” mean amazing things. Last summer the Always brand created a social experiment video that was launched on YouTube, encouraging girls everywhere to change the meaning of #LikeAGirl from an insult into doing something downright amazing! I am proud to share that Always #LikeAGirl YouTube video currently has over 90 million views across the globe.

There have been thousands of inspiring #LikeAGirl posts worldwide and with your support and the help of girls around the world.  A new Always survey shows that 72 percent of girls feel held back by society, which dictates what they should and shouldn’t do. They have created this new social experiment video that brings that statistic to life and encourages girls to feel unstoppable and smash any limitations that hold them back.

  6. I love the like a girl campaign! I don't have daughters but I do have a niece and I hope she will be awesomely her – like a girl!

  7. I absolutely love the video. I don't want my daughter growing up thinking she shouldn't do things because she's female. If anything, I want her to know that she is capable of doing anything and reaching for the stars. Always is sending a great message with this campaign.

  10. What a great campaign. Girls SHOULD be proud to show their assets meaning skills rather than their bodies.

  11. I always make a point to share strong, independent, successful women with my daughters to show them they can do absolutely anything. It is important they know that they never have to sacrifice their morals or show their bodies to feel powerful or respected.

  12. Ha, ha, ha… I love this. I love how today's society is all about giving girls power. It is so right-on! ALWAYS, right-on! HA

  13. So many more opportunities are opening up for girls and they should be afraid to go for them! This is an awesome campaign!

    I definitely plan on raising my girl to understand she can do anything she wants! Gender stereotyping needs to be a thing of the past!

  15. I love the message of girl power and strong women!!

    What a great campaign! Girls shouldn't be limited just because they are a girl. There are plenty of other limitations out the world; but being a girl shouldn't be one of them. We should be embracing the amazing things that being a girl brings! And they need to realized they have a lot to offer the world, not be focused on their bodies as their only asset.

  17. As the mother of a teen girl, I am always encouraging her and telling her that she can do anything she wants to do. Being a girl does not stop you at all.

  18. super awesome campaign. thanks for sharing.

    There are amazing opportunties for girls. I am proud of my daughter who followed her dream and is doing well for herself in a job that was once dominated by men.

  20. Tammy Roy says

    I hate when you hear a little girl say those words. I have always taught my children they can do whatever they want in life. As long as they work hard anything is possible.

  21. This is a fantastic campaign. It is so important that little girls learn that gender does not determine what you can do.
