Throw “Like a Girl”

I feel a little hesitant putting this video up because in doing so I’m posting an advertisement for “Always” feminine products but I’ve got to say, it makes a great point.  I know I absorbed the “throw like a girl” message as a kid so I applaud the younger ladies in this video who haven’t been brainwashed along those lines yet.  Don’t let it happen.  Ever!

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.
