Beyoncé, Jane Lynch and Jennifer Garner have united with The Girl Scouts of the USA, LeanIn.org and Lifetime television to create an inspiring new “Ban Bossy” PSA that encourages young females to embark on positions of leadership. Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook who spearheaded the launch of the campaign, recommends the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy to “take a deep breath and praise her leadership skills instead.”

“We need to recognize the many ways we systematically discourage leadership in girls from a young age, and instead, we need to encourage them,” says Sandberg.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and designer Diane von Furstenberg have also joined the initiative which asserts that girls are discouraged from taking leadership roles because of labeling and name-calling. The campaign seeks to empower girls by encouraging everyone to sign a pledge to ban the five-letter word at banbossy.com.

“I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher,” Glee star Jane Lynch states in the PSA, while designer Diane von Furstenberg encourages girls to “dare to be you.” Take a look at this inspiring message of empowerment below!

 
“I’m not bossy; I’m the boss.” No arguments here, Beyoncé.
