#BanBossy to promote girl leadership around the world

natasciaradice

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. Join the pledge - support the campaign, download the toolkit from the website - whatever you do #banbossy because the world needs more female leaders.

    How about compiling a list of words in different languages/cultures that are the equivalent of bossy? There are so many nuances that it would be good to explore in a larger conversation.
