As part of its longstanding commitment to empowering the female leaders of tomorrow, BMO has launched an online initiative to eliminate discriminatory language in dictionary definitions for terms such as “gold digger” and “shopaholic.”

Timed to coincide with the International Day of the Girl on Oct. 11, the social media campaign from FCB Canada is an evolution of “Jane’s Story”—an initiative timed for International Women’s Day in March that illustrated the subtle but pervasive obstacles women face when it comes to establishing financial independence.

BMO is urging consumers to take action through a petition aimed at eliminating gender bias in dictionary definitions that undermine women’s financial confidence and independence.
