Nike released a new ad during the Oscar’s last weekend featuring famous female athletes and the stereotypes about them. It’s part of a new campaign they launched called “Dream Crazier” that sets out to inspire young girls to dream big and shatter the harsh criticism women face in the world of sports.
“If we show emotion, we’re called dramatic,” she said. “If we want to play against men, we’re nuts. And if we dream of equal opportunity, we’re delusional. When we stand for something we’re unhinged. When we’re too good, there’s something wrong with us. And if we get angry, we’re hysterical, irrational, or just plain crazy.” ~ Serena Williams narration in the new Nike ad via Forbes
The message of the ad is told through 24 different women that span the wide world of sports, showing athletes who dared to do what people thought was impossible. Get inspired and check out Nike’s ad below.
