Celebrate TV's Top 10 Fabulous Female Bosses

This month, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg created attention for cultivating leadership qualities in women through the #banbossy campaign, saying, "When a little boy asserts himself, he's called a leader. Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded bossy."

One of the best ways to show young girls we support their bossiness and their leadership is for them to see women in charge. Fortunately we have a ton of great examples of women in leadership in our favorite television shows to celebrate, including these Top 10 Fabulous Female TV Bosses!

1. Angela Bower (Judith Light) - Who's the Boss? (1984-1992)

The title may have asked the question, but the answer was obvious. Sure, Tony the housekeeper may have run the household and helped raise Angela's son. But, that just proved what a great boss Angela was. She understood the secret to managerial success was to hire someone who knows more than you do on a given topic, and then stand back and let them do their thing.

And if you still have any doubts regarding Judith Light's ability to close any deal to her advantage, check her out on the current Dallas revival, where Mama Ryland can turn a profit, outsmart a drug dealer... and cop a feel, all at the same time.
