This Inspiring Tribute Will Make You Proud To Be A Woman (Or Wish You Were One)

Posted: Updated:

Microsoft honored the women who led, inspired and endured in 2013 with a stirring montage that will make you proud.

The ad (watch above) to promote the search engine Bing begins with education activist Malala Yousafzai and continues along to the beat of Sara Bareilles' "Brave." A parade of other noteworthy women, including swimmer Diana Nyad and gay marriage pioneer Edith Windsor, are also featured in the inspiring clip. Talk about girl power.

However, as AdWeek points out, the look back found its detractors. Several commenters on YouTube took issue with men being omitted. "Men do good things too," one user wrote.

In a final nod to the heroic women, the ad's tagline reads, "Be brave in 2014."

That's advice we all can take to heart.
