Empowering Girls: Bossy Girls


Kathleen Deveny has a great article in Newsweek titled In Praise of Bossy Girls, about how we hear girls, but never boys, called Bossy when they take charge.

We ask girls to walk a fine line between being strong and being likable. It’s a line we typically allow boys to trample.

What’s next?

Well, you KNOW what’s next, because it’s either happened to you or you’ve used all your powers of “nice” to avoid it.

As little girls they call us bossy. As women they call us BITCHY.

Praise your bossy daughter today! She’s showing signs of being a leader.
