Ban Bossy Today!

Posted: Mar 11, 2014

Ban Bossy Today! 

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.

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 Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Garner and others that points out that girls are discouraged from taking leadership roles because of labeling and name-calling.

Whether your are a parent, educator, or troop leader, there are great resources to help your daughter realize the importance of banning bossy and stepping into leadership roles.  

Help our girls change the future by changing the way we talk about it. Find out more and Pledge to Ban Bossy today!

PHOENIX- In comparison with the Nation, Arizona ranks third for women and children in poverty; second to last for total number of women with a high school diploma; and fifth for the rate of teen births to girls who are already mothers.
