Like a Girl - Always Keep Playing


You throw like a girl.
You run like a girl.
You hit like a girl.

Let's break the stigma that doing something like a girl is a bad thing! I've teamed up with Always Infinity to help redefine what it means to be and do #LikeAGirl.

Growing up, I was a combination of a girly girl and a tomboy. I loved playing with Barbies and doing my nails, but I also enjoyed dressing in clothes that were less form-fitting. I didn't really play any sports (other than gymnastics) when I was very young, so I didn't have to deal with a lot of the phrases that I mentioned earlier in this post. But sometimes I did hear that boys wouldn't like me if I continued to dress the way I did. 

There is a certain way that girls are supposed to look; supposed to dress; supposed to act. And when you defy that, some people feel the need to say something simply because they don't understand. So it's important to Always Keep Playing. And what I mean by that is we should teach the girls of this generation that it's totally OK to wear baggy overalls. And that it's totally OK to want to play quarterback. And that's it's totally OK to break past obstacles and go for your dreams, even if they aren't typical of your gender.

The more girls portrayed as active players in sports roles, the better. A lot of times young girls lose confidence in going for their goals because they've never seen anyone who looks like them achieve it. And soon, doing something like a girl will only have a positive connotation because the girls of today become the role models of tomorrow.

What are your thoughts on the Always #LikeAGirl - Keep Playing video? What steps do you think we can take to turn the phrase like a girl from something negative to something positive, especially in reference to girls in the sports world?

More Musings

5 musings

  1. I love this video! There's always a stigma on how girls should be and I think we should teach girls to do what they want to do like play sports and encourage them. I also think it starts with the school. I don't remember having a sports team growing up in school. You would always have to join an outside league.


  2. I love the idea behind this ad - because yes, we are always portrayed as the weakest but at the end its really women that have to hold the fort.

  3. Great message behind campaigns like this, and I like the video as well. Yay, for "Girl Power!"

  4. I LOVE this!! Such a killer ad campaign. <3 Thanks for sharing!
