Houstonians weigh in on 'Ban Bossy' movement

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Something many fathers try to teach their sons is how to be a leader, but some say a word is holding many women back from being leaders themselves.

Some women are claiming the word "bossy" is preventing women from making advancements in the workforce.

Many believe there is a double standard on the perception of a woman versus a man giving orders.

One Local 2 viewer commented on our Facebook page saying:

"If we tiptoe around our children instead of teaching them to be strong people, then yes, they will be subordinate. We should teach them to take what people say and make themselves stronger, not keep them from hearing negative comments." -Jimmy Burage
