Beyoncé Wants You To Ban The Word 'Bossy' From Your Vocabulary

Share

 

 

Beyoncé—along with big names like Condoleezza Rice, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jennifer Garner, and of course, Sheryl Sandberg—are encouraging women and girls to banish the word "bossy" from their vocabulary. In the above minute-long PSA, the powerhouse group of women suggest that we label women ambitious, fearless, and leaders. No convincing needed here!

Statistics show that girls are less interested in leadership by the time they reach middle school because they worry about being called "bossy." The stars talk about listening to one's own voice in order to change the world. The best part? Beyoncé shows us, once again, that she runs the world by clarifying, "I'm not bossy. I'm the boss." #BowDown
