Hey hey Bay Area folk, there’s a bowling party in SF tomorrow, put on by the Conquer Cancer Coalition and the money collected goes to support the George Mark Children’s House (the awe-inspiring pediatric hospice where I volunteer). If you’re free, you should come bowl with me & Darryl McDaniels. #georgemark #georgemarkchildrenshouse #luckystrike #rundmc
A new ad is challenging the way people think about “like a girl,” highlighting the effects it can have on young girls as they grow up. Award-winning documentarian and photographer Lauren Greenfield directed the ad, commissioned by female hygiene products brand Always. In the short video, Greenfield show what happens when people of varying ages and genders are told to do specific actions “like a girl.”
The heart of the problem is this: Prior to puberty, girls are allowed to be children. Some breaking of gender norms is considered cute and precocious. It’s ok to be a tomboy.
As a girl (or person identified by others as a girl) enters puberty, they get sanctioned more often and more harshly for nonconforming behavior.
The reason that girls lose self esteem at puberty is because they’re expected to now be women, and they’ve been told the whole time that that’s bad.
