Actresses Soha Ali Khan and Radhika Apte have extended their support to a campaign by a sanitary napkin brand, that focuses on removing negative connotations from the phrase ‘Like A Girl‘.
You run like a girl, you throw like a girl, you fight like a girl, you play like a girl are common usage of the phrase. And the brand has set out on a mission to add positive angle to it.
To support the initiative, the brand also on Wednesday came out with a video titled #LikeAGirl with an aim to bring India’s attention to the impact such phrases can have on a girl’s confidence, read a statement.
Radhika feels the wrong usage of the phrase adds “self-doubt” in girls.
She said, “Young girls go through many changes on attaining puberty. Not just physical, but even societal changes. In fact, every girl at some point in time has been told that there is something not quite right with the way she does things. A common phrase that only adds to this self doubt is Like A Girl’.”
