For years and years I have been pointing out to people who use “like a girl” in a disparaging way that it is not cool to use that phrase as such…
Random person: “Did you see that terrible pitch? ____ throws like a girl.”
Me: “You know that’s an insult, right?
So, I was very very very happy to see this Always “Like a Girl” ad campaign point out my very point so perfectly. I’m even more thrilled to see the #likeagirl hashtag making its way around. When my friend Amanda requested a gymnastics cookie box for her niece who medaled recently in a gymnastics competition, I knew we had to use the #likeagirl theme to make it even more awesome.
Next time you use the phrase #LikeAGirl remember that it means only good and amazing things… girls are strong, smart, and awesome! Congrats to Alexa and her team for showing us exactly how its done! Woohoo! Xo Dani
