Jennifer Garner, Victoria Beckham and Condoleeza Rice have also backed the Ban Bossy initiative
Beyoncé has appeared in a video to promote a campaign to ban the word “bossy” – watch it above.
According to the Ban Bossy campaign, which was created by the Girl Scouts of USA and LeanIn.Org, a non-profit founded Facebook’s chief operating officer by Sheryl Sandberg, young women are being put off expressing ambition over fears of being labelled bossy.
“When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader”. Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy,” the campaign’s website reads. “Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up.”
In the video, which you can watch above, Beyoncé says: “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.”
Other celebrities featured in the campaign are actress Jennifer Garner, designer and singer Victoria Beckham and former US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
