If you were born as a girl, I ask again, "How can you act any different?" Report

"Like a girl" should not be a humiliation or a derogatory statement but it is to part of our population. Girls get tied up in these things because they are seen and treated as "less than" by those in power in society. You can make light of it or act like it doesn't happen, but it does and it doesn't end when you transition to being a woman. Report

POWERFUL MESSAGE!!! I want every young woman that I know to see this. I don't really care that it is an advertisement for "Always". The message is important. Report

My ex husband would tease me by saying I "throw like a girl" like it was a bad thing. One of the many reasons he's my ex. Report

Awesome message! "Why can't 'run like a girl' mean win the race?" Wish we had this message when I was a girl! Report

When I see this video it brings tears to my eyes! I remember being young and running like a girl, hitting the ball like a girl, and the like, and I was excellent at sports. I also remember when I hit those critical years when I learned that doing things "like a girl" became an insult, and then I wanted to be accepted like I was doing it like a boy. So sad. I hope young girls see this and change their perceptions and realize being a girl is wonderful. Boys are not ashamed of themselves, so neither should girls! Report
