New Campaign Challenges Girls to Break Down Gender Stereotypes [Video]

From an early age, society tells girls not to be brave, not to be outspoken and not to exhibit any of those traits that are “un-ladylike” or that are “reserved for men”. But what if women were told, that with God, they can do and be whatever their heart desires. What if, instead of placing girls inside of a box, we set them free and gave them the tools and support needed to live up to their full potential?

That’s exactly what Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign sets out to do! When we watched this video, we were almost moved to tears. The message is so powerful and it’s something that every girl, no matter what age, should hear.

Take a look at the video and share thoughts in the comments below.

    I love, love, love when things like this are posted! This video really just made my day? Month? Year? No, lifetime! I’m posting this video on all my social media accounts! This truly inspires me, I love how it’s being more encouraged to be free to speak up for what I believe in, as a girl I’ve always felt I had to keep everything to myself for fear, that I’d be told to stop being me, because what I’m doing is a boy thing or it’s not girly, and I’m supposed to be girly (I am a girl after all), but it makes me so thankful to know that people to this day are stepping up and working hard to give girls a voice.

    I feel that this video is pushing the idea of feminism. Which I believe is not good. Girls can be strong and confident and brave but there comes a point where it can be too much. God did not create men and women to be equal and I think that’s what this video is teaching.

      I know right?! God made a difference between man and woman for a reason. I can agree with some things in the feminism area but when women try and act like they are equal to men and even above them is silly. Women need to know their place (and men as well. :P) I wish girls and guys would just stay away from a territory they shouldn’t be venturing into. :\

    I’m not quite sure how to say this, but while I think this is great – supporting self-confidence in girls – there are things we can’t (or shouldn’t) do because we are women. God made us different from men and everything He made was good. We have our roles. Now, I don’t think that means we can’t play sports, or be brave, or strong, but there are lots of things that are for men and lots of things that are for women. I hope what I’m trying to say makes sense.

      I think you totally make sense cos there’s a fine line between girls being confident and empowered and just being plain arrogant. In as much as we all can do much more than people believe we can and a lot of what boys/men can do too,SOMETIMES we have to step back and see how to assist as girls/women and just let the males do what they have to do. We just have to be careful not to go on to being full of ourselves under the cover of “empowerment”

    Empowering and raising a girl’s self-confidence is great, but where do we draw the line in being outspoken and bold? This empowering can affect girls (and boys) to act separately from the Father because they believe they are in control of their own destiny. We must be careful to boost confidence in girls the right way, which is to show them they are created in a divine image and to be who He created them to be. Otherwise we will end up with women who divorce their husbands or become lesbians because they believe the world is just suppressing their right to express themselves.
