Juliette Gordon Low
Founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA
"Ours is a circle of friendships united by ideals."
- Juliette Gordon Low
“Don’t Let’s Forget the Girls.”
Juliette Gordon Low always remembered that scouting is first and foremost about the girls! How does scouting differ from when it first began? You’ll hear about the early days of the Girl Scouts from “Daisy” herself, a remarkable woman whose legacy has encouraged young girls to achieve their highest potential for more than 100 years. Her own story shows a triumph over the physical disability of deafness and the sadness of a broken marriage.
