What can we do to help ban the word "bossy?" People often see gender inequality as a problem too big to fix on their own, but I think cultural shifts happen by small things we do each day. To help ban the word "bossy," tell your girls:
- Speak Up. Raise your hand in class and express yourself.
- Believe in Yourself. Trust that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
- Stop Apologizing. There's no need to say that you're sorry for making a decision.
- Practice. Remember, leadership is a muscle that can be worked like any other.
