Todd confesses that he still feels intimidated by powerful women in our society, and he uses Oprah and Hillary Clinton as examples. This leads to a discussion about the campaign created by Sheryl Sandberg called “Banning Bossy” The campaign is designed to empower female leadership by making us more conscious of the words we use to describe young girls as they assert themselves.
The confidence gap starts early– Between elementary and high school, girls’ self–esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys’.
Bossy holds girls back– Girls are twice as likely as boys to worry that leadership roles will make them seem “bossy.”
Girls get less airtime in class- They are called on less and interrupted more.
They also discuss Cathy’s blog- “Banning Bossy: It’s not about the word, it’s about the conversation” and why this campaign (which has been ridiculed by bloggers and the media) is worth another look.
Other topics include the value of partner vacations and why being away can bring you back to center.
