Does our society limit girls? Depending on who you ask, you will get different answers from different people. Some will yes, of course, while others will adamantly insist, no way.
Always has released the latest in their #LikeAGirl campaign and they are letting the world know that 72 percent of girls feel that society does limit them. And just like that, it doesn’t really matter what everyone else thinks. If young girls are feeling limited, they are being limited simply because of that feeling.
“Have you ever been told because you’re a girl that you should not do something?”
“Yes, all the time, all the time, it’s a constant.”
The girls are asked to write down some of the limitations that they feel are placed on them on giant cardboard boxes and then kick, smash and break those boxes down—just like the limitations themselves.
We need to show our girls that those limitations have as much power as those cardboard boxes. We need to teach them that they are unstoppable and capable of doing anything that a boy can do.
“Do anything you want, conquer any fear you’ve had and just live your dream and just do whatever you want to do. That’s why I love the word unstoppable.”
