  • [Female Director] Hi Erin!

  • Hi!

  • [Director] Okay, so I'm gonna just give you some actions to do, and just do the first thing that comes to mind.

  • Show me what it looks like to run like a girl.

  • My hair, Oh God.

  • Show me what it looks like to fight like a girl.

  • Now throw like a girl.

  • Awww.

  • My name is Dakota, and I'm ten years old.

  • [Director] Show me what it looks like to run like a girl.

  • Throw like a girl.

  • Fight like a girl.

  • What does it mean to you when I say run like a girl?

  • It means run as fast as you can.

  • So do you think you just insulted your sister?

  • No, I mean, yeah, insulted girls, but not my sister.

  • Is "like a girl" a good thing?

  • I actually don't know what it really... if it's a bad thing or a good thing. It sounds like a bad thing.

  • It sounds like you're trying to humiliate someone.

  • So when they're in that vulnerable time, between ten and twelve,

  • how do you think it affects them when somebody uses "like a girl" as an insult?

  • I think it definitely drops their self-confidence.

  • and really puts them down, because during that time they're already trying to figure themselves out.

  • And when somebody says, "You hit like a girl" it's like,

  • well, what does that mean? 'Cause they think they're a strong person.

  • It's kind of like telling them that they're weak, and they're not as good as them.

  • And what advice do you have to young girls who are told they run like a girl, kick like a girl,

  • hit like a girl, swim like a girl?

  • Keep doing it, cause it's working.

  • If somebody else says that running like a girl, or kicking like a girl, or shooting like a girl

  • is something that you shouldn't be doing, that's their problem.

  • because if you're still scoring, and you're still getting to the ball in time, and you're still being first,

  • you're doing it right. It doesn't matter what they say.

  • I mean, yes! I kick like a girl, and I swim like a girl, and I walk like a girl, and I wake up in the morning like a girl.

  • Because I am a girl.

  • And that is not something that I should be ashamed of, so I'm gonna do it anyway.

  • That's what they should do.

  • [Director] If I asked you to run like a girl now would you do it differently?

  • I would run like myself.

  • Would you like a chance to redo it?

  • Yeah.

  • Why can't "run like a girl" also mean win the race?
