Ban Bossy! 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.
From the CEO of world’s largest company to the CEO of her family at home, we want girls to be whatever they dream without fear of being called “bossy”. Take the pledge to Ban Bossy online and share facts and figures on girls’ leadership; read Ban Bossy quotes from celebrities and leaders and download our leadership tips encouraging girls and women to lead throughout their lives. When the girls participate in the activity they can earn the "I'm a Leader" patch.
