The 1 Word You Should NEVER Say To A Girl [WATCH]

Must read

For every girl who holds back from raising her hand in class, who stops herself from raising her voice, or who doubts herself and what she’s capable of: This video is for you.

For the rest of you reading this? Well, if you find yourself using the word in the video to describe young girls, I hope these girls — who are at the age where studies have shown girls’ self-esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys — remind you that words matter.

Now, girls: Speak up, take the lead, and let’s run this world.

This awesome video was made by Lean In, a non-profit organization, which you can follow on Twitter. Calling all women, men, boys, and girls: Join Sheryl Sandberg, Condoleezza Rice, and Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chavez to take the pledge to Ban Bossy —> www.banbossy.com.

“We need to get rid of the word ‘bossy’ and bring back the word ‘feminist,'” Sandberg said onstage at TEDWomen in December 2013. Just a little reminder of how awesome Sheryl is.
