Always Urges Girls to 'Keep Playing' and Not Quit Sports in Olympic 'Like a Girl' Spot

Battling another bleak statistic


When it comes to sports, girls are often discouraged from continuing to play because of their gender. That's a message that's not worth listening to, says this new Olympic-themed spot from Procter & Gamble's Always. 

Part of the ongoing "Like a Girl" campaign from Leo Burnett, the P&G brand's new 60-second film was created with documentary filmmaker Nanette Burstein, whose pro-girl résumé includes STEM ads from Microsoft and this Knorr mini-documentary. While it still uses social experiment elements from Lauren Greenfield's original "Like a Girl" ads, the brand's latest work moves the girls outside and shows them in their own environments.
