Sheryl Sanberg Wants To Ban Word Bossy Refuses To Turn The Other Cheek

March 10, 2014

Can banning one school-yard word really change the world? Sheryl Sandberg says yes.

Sandberg — the chief operating officer of Facebook and author of the best-selling book “Lean In” — is spearheading the launch of a campaign today to ban the word “bossy,” arguing the negative put-down stops girls from pursuing leadership roles.

“We know that by middle school, more boys than girls want to lead,” Sandberg said, “and if you ask girls why they don’t want to lead, whether it’s the school project all the way on to running for office, they don’t want to be called bossy, and they don’t want to be disliked.”

Sheryl Sanberg of Facebook refused to turn the other cheek.
