Juliette Gordon Low established the Girl Scouts as an organization to prepare girls to meet their world with courage, confidence, and character. In 1912, in the midst of the Progressive Era—and at a time when women in the United States couldn’t yet vote—this nearly deaf 51-year-old sparked a worldwide movement inspiring girls to embrace, together, their individuality, strength, and intellect. The Girl Scouts today includes 1.7 million Girl Scouts in 92 countries. They’ve done so well that the struggling Boy Scouts are trying to pouch the girls to join the Boy Scouts.
