and Jennifer Garner are just two of the prominent women featured in a
new PSA that takes a stand against the term "bossy" and
what it stands for with respect to female empowerment. "Being
labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional
video for the campaign. "Girls are less interested in leadership
than boys," Beyoncé says, while actress Jane Lynch adds, "and
that's because they worry about being called 'bossy.'"
PSA is part of an effort against discouraging girls from leadership
and is a joint venture from the Girl Scouts of America and the
Lifetime network. Participants also include Condoleezza Rice, Diane
von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean
In" author Sheryl Sandberg.
