'Like a Girl': What Does that Mean to You?

5.0 ·

A new Always advert seeks to change what it means to be 'like a girl' by showing kids and adults reacting differently to the phrase.

Women: if someone asked you to ‘run like a girl’, what would you do? Might you start running with dainty little steps? Or would you run the way you always have, with as much strength and power as you can muster?

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
