Bing Commercial Salutes 'Heroic Women of 2013' and Gets Us Teary

In case you needed any reminding, 2013 was a pretty big year for women. And if you caught last night's Golden Globes (without fast-forwarding through all the commercials), you probably sat rapt in the same moment of awe we did when Microsoft's latest ad hit the screen—and was all about celebrating powerful ladies.
From the eternally inspiring Malala Yousafzai to the triumphant Gabby Giffords, the ad pays tribute to just some of the many courageous women who made last year what it was, in a one-minute, one-second-long ads titled, "Heroic Women of 2013." Watch as they break records, shatter glass ceilings and stand up and insist on being heard. (Oh, and did we mention Sara Bareilles's song unofficial lady anthem "Brave" plays the entire time? Yeah, it's pretty amazing.)
Prepare to be inspired ... and immediately excuse yourself to go dance.
