Pledge to Ban Bossy Today!

ban bossyWhen a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys – a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead.

As part of Ban Bossy, Girl Scouts of the USA and LeanIn.org have teamed up in partnership with Lifetime television to create a PSA featuring Beyonce, Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Garner and others that points out that girls are discouraged from taking leadershi9p roles because of labeling and name-calling. To watch this great PSA, click here. Share with your friends and neighbors and help take a stand to Ban Bossy!
