The Ban Bossy Campaign Sweeps the Nation

A new fight against the b-word. And no, we aren't talking about that five letter word your thinking of. We are talking about the term bossy. The word that is so frequently used, but now many believe is holding women back.

When it comes to America's young women, reports say the lay of the land looks a little like this. Girls are twice as likely to worry about how a leadership role will make them look bossy and their confidence goes down 3.5 times more than boys by the time they reach high school. Because of this, the word "bossy" has now gained the reputation of a loaded word and the Ban Bossy Campaign was born. The girl scouts, along with tons of celebrity endorsements, are doing their part to get involved in the campaign.
