Girl Scouts aim to end use of the term “bossy”

When girls are called bossy, it’s by a female classmate or peer 70 percent of the time. And of the girls who have been called bossy, 45 percent say they no longer wanted to lead after hearing it. The Girl Scouts are aiming to change that. Along with their operations as usual, the Girl Scouts have partnered with LeanIn.org to launch Ban Bossy, a public-service campaign to encourage leadership in girls.
