 I'm a little late in getting on this bandwagon, but I couldn't be more supportive of the recent #likeagirl campaign, started by Always, and exploding like fireworks all over social media.  For years, to be told that one does anything "like a girl" was the gravest of insults.  Why?  Because the phrase supported the stereotype that girls do everything less-well than boys . . . simply because they are girls.

Check out this YouTube Video that nicely explains this stereotype, and which gives us good role models and examples for changing society's ideas about gender roles, expectations and assumptions.  Then, spread the word and help chip away at this common form of sexism.
