‘Big and strong is what we tell every boy to be,’ she says at the beginning of the film. ‘But what about us girls? We have to be big and strong. Strong enough to love ourselves when the world is telling us not to, to know our limits and know when they don’t apply.’

‘To chart our own path.’

‘To raise your voice in a world that wasn’t designed for you in the first place. To make our own choices.’

‘Strong enough for monthly pain. To endure disappointment, to process loss, and keep going. Strong enough to bring new life. Or to choose not to.’

‘To give a part of ourselves and expect nothing in return. Strong enough to carry the weight of the world and say when it’s too much.’

‘Strong like a woman. A big strong woman.’

The film was conceptualized by Graham and Joanna Griffiths, the founder and CEO of Knix, ‘through a shared experience navigating various gender barriers, while both pregnant with twins, the film highlights the common female experience of a world that does not create space for women, to be big and strong,’ according to a press release.

Ashley worked on the project as Creative Director and narrator.

‘I am beyond thrilled to show the world what we’ve been working on for Knix. Together with Joanna, we created this film to showcase all the challenges women face that make them the very picture of strength that should be celebrated every day,’ Ashley said in the release.

According to the release, the film is intended to shed ‘light on the systemic norms and language that have encouraged boys to be big and strong, while girls are often told from a young age to be the exact opposite. 

‘The ethos of this film celebrates the magnitude of female strength in all its forms through a montage of intimate and powerful moments provided by the Knix community and some notable celebrities.’

The film appeared to have been shot during Ashley’s most recent pregnancy.

The model and her husband Justin Ervin recently welcomed twin sons, Malachi and Roman.

Announcing the birth last month, Ashley posted to Instagram: ‘Justin and I are so excited to share that our baby boys are here. They were born early this morning at home and are happy and healthy.’

She concluded: ‘I’m taking some time to heal up and connect with my husband and three boys, but I truly can not wait to share more with you all. Much love, AG.’

The babies make their son Isaac a big brother. The couple welcomed him, their first child together, in January 2020.
