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.
Join us at one of two Ban Bossy events sponsored by our council; on Sunday, June 1, Ban the Bossy will take place at Cal State SB; on Saturday, July 26, Ban Bossy will take place at the Jack Bulik Teen Center in Fontana.
