Guess who’s 100? The Girls Scouts of the USA, that’s who!
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout Troop on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Ga. Today, there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts—2.3 million girl members and 890,000 adult members working primarily as volunteers. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
Actually, Girl Scouts was started in America after Juliette Gordon Low met Robert Baden-Powell, a hard core British soldier who started the scouting movement—specifically, the Girl Guides in 1910. At that time, girls were expected to sit quietly and keep their dresses clean. This was about as groundbreaking as Title IX was in 1972. Girl power goes back a long way, dear readers!
