Ban Bossy: Empowering Girls to Lead

March 11, 2014

Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and best-selling author, has launched a new campaign to ban the word “bossy”.

“We know that by middle school, more boys than girls want to lead,” Sandberg said, “and if you ask girls why they don’t want to lead, whether it’s the school project all the way on to running for office, they don’t want to be called bossy, and they don’t want to be disliked.”
