Bossy, like a BOSS! — "Who Run The World? Girls"

This is a range very very close to my heart & I'm forever adding more badass rebels to it: a big bold blaring visual love letter to all the warriors who have played or are playing a role in smashing the patriarchy & claiming their space.

 


 

I'm often asked about the name of this range so I've broken it down here:
When I was a kid, I was often shamed for being forward, decisive, confident & headstrong. & while my male counterparts were cheered & high-fived for being exactly that, I was told I was bossy - a term heavily loaded with only negative connotations. I'm in my mid 30s now & I have yet to hear a boy or man be called bossy.
These are the first hits you get when you google the meaning of the words "BOSS" & "BOSSY". See for yourself the disparity of the male and female association with these terms.
& THIS is why I've called this range "Bossy, like a BOSS!"

So this is my little contribution to making the next generation of women (& that's anyone who identifies as such) even bolder & LOUDER, making sure they are both seen & see themselves - up on billboards, screens, front covers, panels & leadership roles. 
I hope it brings hours & hours of inspiration & joy to whoever needs it!
