John Legend - You & I (Nobody In The World)
They are young and old, cis and trans, straight and queer, in sickness and in health, and they come in countless colors, shapes, and sizes. They are women, and for four minutes and 15 seconds, John Legend pays them the basic respect that half the world’s population is routinely denied.
It is not a revolutionary video — at least, it shouldn’t be. Deceptively simple in form and function, You & I uses only a progression of medium shots of individual women. Presented with their totality, the differences fade away, and we are left with the fact that before anything else, women are simply and unignorably people.
That this is hailed as a radical political statement shows the sad state of our culture. But it makes such simple statements all the more important to make.

#LikeAGirl by Lauren Greenfield
Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence.
We’re kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.
"In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand," said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. "When the words ‘like a girl’ are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine ‘like a girl’ into a positive affirmation."

Pinnipèdes by Victor Caire
With Pixar’s attention to the natural world, this short film would be a great fit for them. Someone hire this fellow to make a whole series of animated animal shorts.
Pinnipèdes is Victor Caire’s first 3D animated film, made at Supinfocom Arles, and it is darling. Under all those folds of flesh, his animated elephant seals are delightfully expressive.
