The Girl Scouts Share Their Plans for the Ban Bossy Campaign

Posted: Updated:
Montana -

The Ban Bossy campaign. It was just started this Monday, and it's already sweeping the nation with good reason. And who better for them to team up with than the Girl Scouts.

Kande Yeager, the GSLE Manager for the Girl Scouts, explains, "When a man is a boss, people look at him as a leadership role. But when a female steps up and takes that leadership role, they call her bossy. The Y makes a very big difference in these girls lives."

You don't have to be in the work force to take notice. By middle school girls are 25% less likely than boys to say they are taking the lead, and one third of those who don't want to be leaders, say its because they fear being called bossy.

The Girl Scouts believe the time to start building female leaders is now, and that starts with educating the public.

What better way to do that, than let the ladies take the reins. Yeager says, "We are girl letting Girl Scouts, and we want to see where they want to take Ban Bossy."

That means the campaigning and fundraising will be up to them. Allowing them to lead the way. And with all the celebrities who are hopping on board, they have the perfect role models to partner up with.

If you would like to join their partnership in building female leadership, your support can start online. After all, you're help could be the key ingredient that allows these girls to flex their leadership muscles.
