Pledge to Ban Bossy
When it comes to girls and ambition, the pattern is clear: girls are discouraged from leading. When a little boy asserts himself, he's called a "leader." Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded "bossy" -- one of the many ways we discourage girls from leading. The girl wIith the courage to raise her hand becomes the woman with the confidence to assert herself at work. There are small changes each of us can make that will have a big impact on girls' confidence and ambitions. Visit girlscouts.org/banbossy to discover more great resources to help girls flex their leadership muscles, including a short video for troop leaders.
