As you might be picking up, here at the Girl Hero Project we are passionate about the power of words. We really believe that words can change how people think and therefore change the world.
But sometimes words can be powerful in a not so good way. They be used to hurt and judge people, put people down.
Take the saying ‘like a girl’. What does that make you think of if someone says ‘you do that like a girl’? Think for a little while and then watch the video below.
So let’s be part of the change to change people’s minds about what it means to do something ‘like a girl.’
Be strong like a girl.
Be smart like a girl.
Try hard like a girl.
Be wonderfully made like a girl
Be yourself – just like a girl!
