Ban Bossy: Lifetime TV's Message to Young Girls

Barbra Streisand and Steven Spielberg are both seasoned film producers and directors; legendary perfectionists, they're known for showing up on time and fully prepared. They expect nothing less, and will accept nothing less, from their colleagues.

Why then, is Spielberg called a “strong” producer/director, while Streisand is often called a “bitch”?

Lifetime TV, the cable network for women, has launched a campaign in partnership Girl Scouts and LeanIn.org, to address the often culturally accepted mislabeling and name calling which discourages girls from assuming leadership positions.
