Beyoncé Wants To Ban The Word "Bossy"
The superstar is lending her voice to a new campaign...
Beyoncé has joined a host of Hollywood stars, politicians and businesswomen in a new campaign empowering girls.
In the 1-minute public service announcement, Beyoncé, Jennifer Garner and Glee’s Jane Lynch explain that they have themselves been called “pushy”, “stubborn” and “bossy”.
"I think the word 'bossy' is just a squasher," Lynch said in the vid while Jen adds: “Being labeled something matters."
And Beyoncé explains that by middle school: “Girls are less interested in leadership than boys.”
The clip also features appearances from Condoleezza Rice, the former US Secretary of State, and Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook.
“Be brave, be you,” Beyoncé advises in the video, before summing up the campaign: “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss.”
Last year the XO singer told Vogue: “I am a modern-day feminist.”
“I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.”
