Female celebrities from across the country are teaming up in an effort to help girls get out there and take charge. They are also trying to campaign for people to stop calling girls bossy when they are really just being the boss. Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, and Jennifer Garner have started the campaign and hope for it to gain national attention.

When a male stands up and takes charge, he is called a leader. When a girl does it she is labeled as bossy and so many women fear going after leadership roles. The celebs have teamed up with LeanIn which was started by Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) and the Girl Scouts. They also partnered with Lifetime TV to create a PSA.

In the PSA the women speak about how females are either pushed out of leadership roles or afraid to get into them in the first place because of the name calling and bias that surrounds a woman in a position of power. They set up a website called banbossy.com and there is a petition that people can sign to ban the word “bossy”. When girls are labeled with something at a young age or even when they are older, it can scar them and hold them back from going after what they really want. Condoleeza Rice says that there are no limits to how far a woman can go.

The banbossy.com site shows that they are trying to empower girls to go after what they want and to stop the bias that is so present in today’s workforce. There are so many girls and women out there with amazing ideas and talents but they are not being utilized because of how they are perceived when they takes charge. These celebs and organizations are trying to stop this from happening.

  1. A bunch of whining women who want to restrict free speech because they don’t like a certain word. The reality in the business world is one will be called names no matter what the achievement is.

    Idiots like Beyonce, Michelle Obama and other retards need to grow a thick skin and move on.

    I will say bossy anytime I please and if any idiot want to restrict me from saying bossy better call Domino’s pizza. I’m not saying that the fight will be quick but it will be an all day job.

  2. I believe women should be able to lead others. But why is it when someone says “bossy bi***” Beyoncé only has a problem with the word “bossy.” Why isn’t she joining the fight to ban the n-word, nig**r? Why join the feminist movement to help women but not help Black people, including women?

    So she and her husband can call women all types of foul names in their music…just don’t call a woman bossy. Right, gotcha! Dismissed…NEXT!

  3. Beyonce needs to get a clue. She’s just doing this to keep her name in the media. What she should be doing is encouraging girls to go to school, get an education and become a respectable lady with dignity. Oh wait a minute, she can’t do that because she would have to give up her butt shaking career.

    • ROFLMAO. This Barbie wannabe need to go back to school and obtain some form of education. If not for herself, but for her daughter and young black women as well.

      I am sick and tired of her cornbread and catfish mentality.
