Let’s Ban Bossy


What is the latest on the Girl Scout USA agenda? It’s the “Ban Bossy” campaign.
Which would you rather be called, a Leader or Bossy?

While most youth (82%) agree that girls and boys are equally good at being leaders, 52% also agree that “girls have to work harder than boys in order to gain positions of leadership.”

The campaign aims to change the conversation about girls and leadership.
