I Will Ban Bossy

This site is a partnership between the Girl Scouts and Lean In. It is dedicated to encouraging leadership skills in young girls. Ban Bossy

Also, check out their pamphlet Ban_Bossy_Leadership_Tips_for_managers

There were lots of negative comments posted about this recently. I saw many that complained that complained that they should have chosen a word more offensive if they were going to start banning words. I feel like these comments took the campaign a little too literally. Banning bossy isn’t solely about the word itself but the whole sphere of negativity that we transfer to young girls when they attempt to speak out or show any mind of initiative in their young lives. Its about the entire practice of not encouraging our young girls to be leaders.
