- This campaign seems to be getting around the blogs these days, and I happen to be proud to have been called “bossy” my whole life- it means I take charge, am a natural leader, and can get things done! An excerpt:
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.
*I had the hardest time spelling that word for some reason, and one of my mis-spelled and typoed attempts was “bureaucrazy”, which I think is sort of better anyway.
