I’m Not Bossy. I’m the Boss.

The Stigma of Female Ambition

Girl scouts are everywhere ferociously selling cookies and it reminds me of my childhood.  Back then you could purchase a box for $2.50, and I would always hustle to sell the customer an extra box get an even $5 sale. I learned a lot about leadership in girl scouts, but honestly I’ve learned more through out my medical training by simply noticing how I’m treated differently.

Men are labeled ambitious.  Women are labeled aggressive.
Men are labeled leaders.  Women are labeled bossy.
Men get powerful labels, and we get negative ones.
