Ban Bossy -
Ban Bossy - "I'm Not Bossy. I'm the Boss."

Can banning one schoolyard word really change the world? Sheryl Sandberg says yes.


Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook Inc. and author of the best-selling book "Lean In," is spearheading a new campaign to ban the word "bossy," according to, arguing the negative put-down stops girls from pursuing leadership roles.


Sandberg has been joined by others, including Girl Scouts of America CEO Anna Maria Chávez and singer Beyonce, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and actor Jane Lynch.
