Like A Girl - Promo :60

Audience Honor in Gender Equality


The show's positive portrayal of women is especially crucial, as women are often bombarded with unrealistic and unattainable standards. The show, which features women who have broken barriers in their respective fields, showcases how women can excel in traditionally male-dominated industries.

Strategy and Execution

These groundbreaking, badass women turn the phrase “Like A Girl” on its head. Host Beija Velez dives in deep with icons like Olympic medalist April Ross and pro skater Jenn Soto. They’re all superstars but have often been left out of the spotlight, until now! We’re turning on the bright lights and sharing their intimate, personal perspective on the issues they face on and off the field. Mental health, social stigmas, body image, reproductive issues, gender and race inequality, it’s all fair game.


The show has been nominated for a Critic’s Choice Award and has been recognized in the press for the portrayal of women who have overcome adversity and achieved greatness. Each episode serves as a powerful source of inspiration and motivation for young girls and women alike.
