Before I start as usual my sh*t may offend you and that’s fine – perhaps stop reading my sh*t?
I’ve been to airports A LOT of them, multiple times. Without hesitation I will always find myself in the bookshops, I enjoy floating around to see what’s out there and usually end up in the business section, I LOVE business and motivation books they really get me pumped and motivated about life – especially ones about mindset and marketing.
Okay Tel you read and enjoy business books – applause for you – how is this offensive?
Well wait for it…..
Every single time I look for a business book written by a FEMALE the titles are always something along the lines of ‘girl boss’ or have the phases ‘girl, she, women’ in the titles along with a tacky photo of a high heels or pink everywhere.
I F*cking hate it.
I HATE the saying ‘GIRL BOSS’ – Matt actually calls me this simply to get a reaction out of me because he knows how much I can’t stand it!
Uhhhh thinking about it makes me cringe.
Okay before you get your pretty little knickers in a twist let me explain…
I get what the title ‘Girl Boss’ is trying to say – you’re a strong independent women – I get it. We all want to relate to it and use it to empower us and if you are one of those women then that’s bloody great I hope you do succeed and kick life’s ass.
But imagine if we started calling men in business ‘Boy Boss’ – how bloody ridiculous does that sound?
To me, females labelling themselves as ‘Girl Boss’ are only demoralising themselves.
If you’re the boss you are the goddamn boss – why does it matter if you’re female or not? Why must females have to label the fact that they are a female boss? Not just simply the BOSS?
Same as when females are writing a business book why do we feel the need to state our gender in the title or cover it with pink headings and glitter?
Why can’t we simply have a kickarse heading that has nothing to do with our gender?
I think women in business are amazing – I am a woman in business but I refuse to down grade myself to be separate from a man.
I’m not a ‘girl boss’ I’m simply a ‘BOSS’.
Stop down playing your role.
Wake up and kick arse – not because you are a girl but because you are a BOSS.
Stay Strong & Stretch,
