A host of influential women from politicians to Beyoncé have signed up to the Ban Bossy campaign to promote leadership in girls, but it is making a lot of people scratch their heads.

The thought behind it is when men are in charge it is a positive thing, when women do it, they're called bossy. Makes sense so far.

Getting support from Jennifer Garner, Beyoncé, Victoria Beckham, Diane von Furstenberg and started by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and her Lean In foundation - the women want the word bossy to be banned.

We'll let them explain...



"Words like bossy send a message: don't raise your hand or speak up," explains Sandberg on her website. "By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys - a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."

While we all get and applaud the message, people on Twitter are not sold on the campaign:
