Figures. #BanBossy Campaign Was Started By Clinton Donor – Ahead of 2016 Run
It figures. The latest #BanBossy campaign was started by a Hillary Clinton donor – ahead of the 2016 campaign.
The Examiner reported:
Make no mistake, there is always a deeper agenda whenever a seemingly innocent campaign pops up overnight.
On Sunday, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg launched a new campaign, known as ‘Ban Bossy,’ which would – as you can imagine – encourage people to ban the word “bossy.”
Is there some kind of epidemic of that word being used to keep girls from achieving? Many of the surveys cited by the Ban Bossy campaign are decades old, and a more recent survey by the Girl Scouts of America found that girls are more likely than boys to see themselves as a leader or have the desire to be a leader.
So, why start a national campaign?
For starters, Sandberg is an ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
Sandberg worked as former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers’ chief of staff under President Bill Clinton during his second term and maxed out in personal campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton in 2007 and 2008. She also donates almost exclusively to female Democratic candidates.
