Manic Monday

My boss gave me this little guy so we can throw them at each other when we’re wearing headphones. To get each other’s attention. It’s fun.

Here are some links for you today:

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.
