“When 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.”
This is the cry of a new campaign against the word bossy. Check out the video below.
What do you think? Have you ever been called bossy? Have you ever called someone else bossy?
Should we ban the word bossy?
