I LOVE the idea bhind the #BanBossy campaign! It’s meant to encourage girls to pursue leadership, rather than putting them down by calling them “bossy.” Beyonce and Jennifer Garner are two of the celebs in this video. ‘Glee’ star Jane Lynch is in it as well, pointing out that calling a girl bossy is like a “squasher.” She is SO right.
Many powerful women are in this video, including Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, the founder of Leanin.org and the book ‘Lean In.’ Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is in it, too, among others. But I love Beyonce’s final line the best: “I’m not bossy: I’m the boss.” Check it out, and if you have or know a young girl, make sure she takes a look!
