Why Blake Lively banned the word 'bossy' from her house and how other stars are raising feminist kids

Celebrities share how they're raising their kids to live in a more equal world.

One way to do that, she noted, was using feminine pronouns when they can. Lively noted that, for example, if Reynolds picks up a caterpillar, he'll ask, "What's her name?" rather than, "What's his name?" The couple has also committed to eliminating the word "bossy" from their vocabularies.

"My husband said, ‘I don’t ever want to use that word again. You’ve never heard a man called bossy,'" Lively told Glamour. "There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling, and it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss."

Lively, 29, and Reynolds, 40, aren't the only ones who are instilling these values in their children. Other stars have also weighed in on what they're teaching their kids:

1. Beyoncé: In 2014, the singer participated in Sheryl Sandberg's "Ban Bossy" campaign, which encouraged people to stop labeling little girls as "bossy." The campaign's mission is to encourage girls to take on leadership roles -- something they may avoid doing if they were branded as too aggressive as child. "I'm not bossy. I'm the boss," Beyoncé has said.
