Should we stop calling bossy women… er… bossy?

A recent video series suggests we should stop applying the word ‘bossy’ to women, because it stops women from achieving. Really? That’s all it takes? Wow. What does that say about women? How did Margaret Thatcher ever become the most impressive peacetime British prime minister of the 20th century, you might reasonably ask. Bane66au has an edit on the video (featuring Beyonce, Sheryl Sandberg, and other women) which its creators might find helpful. Invest two minutes in watching this gem:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • “How did Margaret Thatcher ever become the most impressive peacetime British prime minister of the 20th century, you might reasonably ask.”
    Argentine begs to differ about the peacetime.
    Her contribution to escalating the Troubles don’t fit in that either.
    But well, that’s not so much of a problem, since: ding-dong!

    Of course, “impressive” is a nice double-edged adjective and allows for various impressions to be appreciated for their strength, but “peacetime” is safely on Tory Mythology ground. Not a good thing to mix with MHR.

    • Michal, thank you. There is some merit in what you say, possibly, but did you live in the UK at the time she first became Prime Minister (1979)?
