Pledge to #BanBossy Today

By KIND Editor

We all know the power of words. 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.

On the one year anniversary of Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg and the Girl Scouts are launching a public service campaign to Ban Bossy, encouraging all girls to lead. Head to BanBossy.com and pledge to #BanBossy today! Get leadership tips and hear from leaders like Beyoncé, Condoleeza Rice, Jane Lynch and Diane von Furstenberg on why they’ve committed to ban bossy.

Did you know the confidence gap starts early? Between elementary and high school, girls’ self-esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys’. Do the KIND Thing and join the fight today—pledge to #BanBossy!
