Thanks to Claudia for the heads up!
Jennifer is part of a new campaign to help encourage young ladies to take charge of their lives. People.com wrote a article about the new campaign.
Pushy, stubborn, bossy.
“Being labeled something matters,” says Jennifer Garner in a new campaign – Ban Bossy – that’s encouraging girls to be leaders.
The Girl Scouts of the USA and LeanIn.org have teamed up in partnership with Lifetime television to create a PSA featuring Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Garner and others that points out that girls are discouraged from taking leadership roles because of labeling and name-calling.
“Girls are less interested in leadership than boys,” Beyoncé says, and that’s because they worry about being called “bossy” while little boys who step up are called “leaders.”
“I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher,” Glee star Lynch says. The campaign seeks to empower girls by encouraging everyone to sign a pledge to ban the five-letter word at banbossy.com.
“We need to recognize the many ways we systematically discourage leadership in girls from a young age – and instead, we need to encourage them,” says Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who founded LeanIn.org. “So the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy? Take a deep breath and praise her leadership skills instead.”
“There are no limits on your horizon,” former Secretary of State Rice says in the ad, while designer von Furstenberg encourages girls to “dare to be you.”
But possibly the strongest Girl Power message of all comes from Beyoncé. The mother of daughter Blue Ivy, 2, says, “I’m not bossy – I’m the boss.”
What do Beyoncé, Condoleezza Rice & Jane Lynch have in common? They’ve committed to ban the word bossy. Watch this Lifetime PSA to hear why. #banbossy / http://banbossy.com

A new interview with CelebInterviews was released of Jen talking about her newest film Dallas Buyers Club.
This morning on “New Day,” “Dallas Buyer’s Club” actress Jennifer Garner advocated for Save the Children, emphasizing to Anchor Chris Cuomo why it’s important to her for the government to pass legislation to finance early education. Garner also commented on recent legislation that protects children from paparazzi harassment in California, beginning January 1st. She was joined by Mark Shriver, senior vice president of Save the Children.
Garner said, “This is important to me because the playing field for kids in America is not equal. And I’ve travelled around the country with Save the Children, going into homes and seeing the way that kids are growing up – there are 16 million kids growing up in poverty in America. And without starting from the very beginning and getting an earlier start on their education, they have very little chance of catching up….”
“I’m looking forward to January 1st, when the law will go into effect, but no, so far I haven’t seen a bit of difference,” Garner said about the paparazzi law. She adds, “The threat of it is not enough. There are ten cars outside my house every single morning.”
