WATCH: Beyonce, Jennifer Garner Film PSA to Ban the Word 'Bossy'


What do Beyoncé, Condoleezza Rice, Jennifer Garner and Jane Lynch have in common? They've committed to ban the word bossy.

In a new Lifetime PSA the women have set to rid the word “bossy” from our vocabularies and encourage more girls to be leaders.

“Being labelled something matters,” Jennifer says in the video where Girl Scouts of the USA and LeanIn.org join forces with the Lifetime TV network.

Beyoncé added that ladies are brought up to take such feedback as an insult while males see it as a compliment. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," she admits in the clip. The performer has been entertaining crowds at London’s O2 Arena recently and added that although she is the woman who provided jobs for many others, she is not too demanding.

"I'm not bossy – I'm the boss," she can be heard saying.

Watch the video PSA above and let us know what you think of the campaign.
