Sorry Not Sorry: The Campaign Sweeping the Internet

Pantene recently published its popular “Not Sorry” video a couple of weeks ago, and now the movement has spread across the Internet. Recently, Girls Leadership Institute founder Rachel Simmons took to The Huffington Post to talk about how girls absolutely hate to self-promote.

Why? Research backs up that when women talks about their good qualities, they’re immediately seen as unlikeable by both men and women. In contrast, men who do so are seen as leaders and are given positive attributes.

So, what’s a girl to do? We’re a long way from gender equality, but it’s time for us to start stepping up and stop apologizing for being great at things. We’re awesome, and we need more people to see that.

Sorry world, we’re not sorry.
