The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

Are you unstoppable? #LikeAGirl

Do you remember while you were growing up, falling over and crying ..... like a girl?

Do you remember wearing pink and pretty things  ...... like a girl?

Did you ever throw a strop ...... like a girl?

Did you ever stop and think that girls are so much more than pretty pink dresses and girly emotions?

As women, we all know that being "like a girl" is something much more empowering, so last year, Always launched the #LikeaGirl campaign, challenging the negative perception of what it means to do something “like a girl”, so often used as an insult. The video went instantly viral and has been viewed more than 85 million times in 150 countries and shared by more than 1.5million people around the world. Yesterday, Always launched the next exciting and ambitious phase of the global campaign, unveiling bold partnerships and long term commitments to the education of young people around the world.

 
 
Always asked if we limit girls and tell them what they should or shouldn’t be? Do we box them into expected roles? 
 
I want my girls to have the freedom and confidence to be who and what they want to be.
 
I want them to paint their room blue, wear trousers and play with trains if they choose to.
 
I want them to be fearless, comfortable in their own skill and ability.
 
I want them to be strong and passionate about the things they love.
 
I want them to be unstoppable ...... like a girl.

  1. So many people don't stop to think about the connotations of these old skool phrases like 'throwing like a girl'. Good on Always!

  2. Brilliant, so important that we do not limit our daughters by sterotypes or our own experiences. Mich x

  3. Hear hear! I hate the way even in 2015 girl's roles are still being defined by sexist expectations. As a young girl I thought we'd be way over that by now.

  4. Never a truer wod spoken. As mums to girls we need to keep saying this.

  5. I just saw a gif on Twitter of a woman in the England football team running around the field with a bloody face, compared to a snippet of an England male team member rolling around on the floor for a simple nudge! Perfect #likeagirl example! Great post
