They want the word "bossy" to get banned...
NME reports that Beyonce has appeared in a video to promote a campaign to ban the word "bossy". The Ban Bossy campaign was created by the Girl Scouts of USA and LeanIn.Org. It is a non-profit organization founded by Facebook's chief operating officer by Sheryl Sandberg. The campaign is based on the idea that young women are kept from "expressing ambition" because they don't want to be labeled "bossy".
The campaign's website reads: "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."
In the video, Beyonce said: "I'm not bossy. I'm the boss."
The clip also includes Jennifer Garner, Victoria Beckham and former US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
