About a year ago I watched the video for the Ban Bossy Campaign. It’s message rang true for me and hit me hard because as a little girl I was oppressed with words like bossy. I think that this campaign really applies to our class. Take a look at the following information and I think you’ll understand why.
Their Campaign Pitch: “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.”
