When did doing something ‘like a girl’ become an insult?
Watch the full Always commercial that seeks to answer this question.

Remember Wendy Davis?
You know, the badass democrat who fillibustered for 11 hours straight to conserve women’s rights in Texas?
Well, this wonderful and amazing woman has announced her campaign for Texas governor!
Let’s show her some goddamn support!
Her opponent, Greg Abbott, is all about “traditional values.”
What fucking good have “traditional values” ever done for anyone?
Not a goddamn thing, that’s what. Vote for Wendy Davis.
More people are concerned with why women stay in abusive relationships than why men are abusing women
Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.”

This is a post that might save a life.
My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.
Society thinks our bodies are so scandalous that it’s better to put our lives at risk than to show us how to stay safe
Again: i have to teach this Every Semester. Right next to the Geena Davis stats about women in and making films.

An expensive, ornate vase can be as much of a centrepiece as the flowers that are in it. These floating vases designed by the Japanese group oodesign take things in the opposite direction by making them look like water ripples.
Shaped like ripples in water, the floating vases by Oodesign from japan allow users to place flowers into a PET formed resin void – floating nonchalantly on the water. fill your favorite container or transparent bowl or a glass with water and float the vase according to the movement of the air, the plants change their position within the container.
