It’s time for the next letter in our SASSY acronym – what does the “A” stand for?
The A in SASSY Stands for Assertive.
The core idea behind being an Assertive Woman is that we must be assertive in order to effect change – both in our own lives and in society as a whole. Society tells us that to be assertive as a woman is something bad: we are labeled “bossy”, “shrill”, and “emotional” when we speak up or speak out …labeled, and then disregarded or discarded.
