Is it too late to take your second chance? This foundation is determined to give you the confidence to take that big leap.
Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?
FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.
Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.
Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.
For example, every year the foundation hosts a number of "We Dare to Bare" events to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes doing boxing, hip hop, yoga, and other boot camps — all just wearing their sports bras. They also have a BIPOC fitness grant program to empower women, businesses, and organizations that are leading the way in making wellness and fitness more inclusive.
When you feel good in your body, you're going to feel much more confident in all aspects of your life, and that will empower you to take a big leap, whether that's leaving your job to start a passion project, learning to dance, or getting on a flying trapeze at the age of 41.
Here are some of the big leaps that members of Movemeant told us they took:
If you want to support others in this mission — or go after it yourself — join FOX in supporting the Movemeant Foundation by donating or applying for one of their grants.
And don't forget to tune in to the series premiere of "The Big Leap" on Monday, September 20 at 9/8c on FOX.
No stranger to being an advocate for treating people with kindness, gentleman heartthrob Harry Styles gave some straightforward dating advice mid-concert that left female fans feeling empowered.
During his Love On Tour stop in Detroit, Styles found a fan holding a sign that read, "Should I text him?" which received boos among the crowd. However, in typical Harry fashion, his reply was simply, "is he nice to you?"
You can watch the full video here:
“should i text him?” TRASH TRASH TRASH!! @Harry_Styles https://t.co/B2cvfzzAKW— 𝚡𝚘𝚡𝚘, 𝚊𝚕𝚣. ♡︎ (@𝚡𝚘𝚡𝚘, 𝚊𝚕𝚣. ♡︎)1632370280.0
He concluded with, "My personal opinion is that if there's any sort of games, trash, trash, trash, not for you," a piece of advice that resulted in raucous applause and a flood of tweets from fans.
This is more than your run-of-the-mill fan-girling. There's plenty of evidence out there that shows Harry Styles has been a champion for feminism in a way that few men have succeeded. And that goes far beyond his fashion choices.
Take for instance in 2014 when he joined the #HeForShe movement in supporting gender equality.

Or in 2017, when he wore T-shirt that bearing the slogan "Women are smarter."
Harry wore a Vintage 'Women are smarter' t-shirt by IAS.
The 'Women are smarter' campaign was inspired by the Women's March in Washington January 21st. A portion of all proceeds are donated to local Planned Parenthoods.https://t.co/L4VuYQGBSa pic.twitter.com/S0rA7Yq0VE

Or my personal favorite, in 2017 when Harry had his Rolling Stones interview, and was quick to defend his fanbase.
"Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they're not serious? How can you say young girls don't get it? They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going. Teenage-girl fans—they don't lie. If they like you, they're there. They don't act 'too cool.' They like you, and they tell you. Which is sick."
It's no wonder why some dub him the "Feminist Prince." And with his special brand of sincerity and charm that encourages women to step into their own power...long may he reign.
