Praise Maroon 5 for Diverse and Inclusive “Girls Like You” Music Video

Target: Adam Levine, Lead Singer of Maroon 5

Goal: Praise Maroon 5 for the diversity and inclusivity of “Girls Like You” music video.

American pop-rock band Maroon 5 released a music video for their new song, “Girls Like You,” and it features prominent feminists. The song itself does not have an explicit message about diversity or inclusivity for women, but the video is an ode to powerful women, from athletes to actresses to activists. The video features Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, who has been outspoken in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. Next, comedian Sarah Silverman is seen. Silverman has been vocal in her protest of gender inequality and racism. The video is not only home to immediately recognizable faces but also presents some lesser known feminists, like UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Lilly Singh, immigration activist Angy Rivera, and Ilhan Omar, the first Somali-American to be elected to office in the United States.

The video has been received warmly. One fan took to Twitter to gush, “I don’t know if it’s cause I’m super emotional but Girls Like You music video made me cry. I just love seeing men acknowledge powerful women.” Another said, “Adam Levine’s music vid for girls like you is the most beautiful thing, honoring smart, strong, athletic, and talented women of all shapes and sizes.”

Sign this petition to praise Maroon 5 for purposefully creating a diverse and inclusive space in their corner of Hollywood during a time when gender discrimination and inequality is rampant.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Levine,

The music video that Maroon 5 produced for “Girls Like You” was inspiring in its inclusivity and push to honor trailblazing women. At a time when the entertainment industry is suffering from sexual harassment, gender disparity, and inequality, it is refreshing to see an all-male band stand with women. I encourage you to continue to use your platform to push for diversity and inclusivity.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
