Chinese women don't often get to live their own lives. Because of the single child policy, girls carry many expectations - be a good daughter, be an excellent student, be a perfect wife - but a brave few prefer to make their own choices.
Pantene decided it was time to praise the women who dare to be different.
The Praise Project invited people to send positive messages to women they admired.
By scanning their thumbs on their mobile phones, friends and family created beautiful illustrations with messages of praise. By sending these personalized cards, friends and family encouraged young Chinese women to #ShineStrong.
