One hundred and six years ago today, a 51-year old widow reinvented herself by inventing the Girl Scouts of the USA.
Juliette Gordon Low invited 18 girls to the first Girl Scout meeting on March 12, 1912, in the carriage house of her home in Savannah, Georgia.
Today that building, known as the First Headquarters, welcomes girls (everyone, actually) from around the world who want to learn more about this woman and her life-changing movement. I look forward to being there next week.
Here’s to the women willing to break the mold, challenge tradition, and shape the future. And here’s to life’s second acts!!
Happy Birthday, Girl Scouts!!
