This month Netflix released the highly anticipated series co-produced by our very own Charlize Theron, called GirlBoss.
Ladyboss is a parody & shows us what it is REALLY like to be woman boss
But is there something wrong with the term #GirlBoss?
I’ve never really thought about it before, but after popping up in my Twitter feed, I had to read why some people thought it was offensive.
Today, we are telling girls — and adult women — that they can be the #Girlboss, but they can’t be “the boss”. Women don’t need to justify their abilities and intellect by making it cute. – Anne, My Lola
But the more I think about it, the more I find the term “girl boss” grating. It seems fine until you try it with any number of women. Is Oprah a girl boss? Is Hillary a girl boss? Is Sheryl Sandberg a girl boss? Is Tina Fey a girl boss? Is Ruth Bader Ginsburg a girl boss? It sounds absurd. – Joanna, Cup of Jo
What do you think of terms like #GirlBoss, #BossBabe and #LadyBoss? I’d be really interested to hear what you think. Leave a comment below or hit us up on social media.

I’m still stuck on the use of #LikeABoss by The Lonely Island. And if being a boss means hanging out with fish from the sewers, count me in.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on terms like #GirlBoss. Are they empowering or not?
