Always #LikeAGirl

Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty's really no picnic either, it's easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl's self-confidence. We're kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing. "In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand," said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. "When the words 'like a girl' are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine 'like a girl' into a positive affirmation." So tell us... what do YOU do #LikeAGirl? For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls.

Gatorade "Made in New York" Commercial Featuring Derek Jeter!

Ahead of his final playing days, Derek Jeter soaks in the atmosphere on a walk in the Bronx. This new Derek Jeter ad is making the rounds via YouTube, this one courtesy of Gatorade. And it’s just as good, if not better, than the mega-viral "RE2PECT" spot from earlier this season. The retiring Yankees captain spends much of the 1:30 video walking to work, greeting wide-eyed fans en-route to Yankee Stadium. As Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” reaches a crescendo, Jeter nods, jogs out of the dugout and doffs his cap. Cut to black. Jeter is scheduled to play his final home game next Thursday in the Bronx, where the goose bumps will be tenfold. The finale of his legendary career will come Sunday, Sept. 28, against the Red Sox at Boston’s Fenway Park.
