Letter to the Editor It was 90 years ago - on March 12,1912, to be exact - when the first group of girls met as Girl Scouts. A wonderfully eccentric, middle-aged visionary named Juliette Gordon Low decided it was time that the girls of Savannah, Georgia, " and all the world" had something special and worthwhile to do. And the Girl Scouts of the USA was born. So much has changed in the world since that first Girl Scout meeting. Would the very first Girl Scouts recognize today's Girl Scouts as part of their group? Certainly not by some of the activities we do, or by the uniforms we wear. But if they were to look deeply, they'd find that the same core qualities of citizenship, kindness, and resourcefulness are still in every Girl Scout. After 90 years of service as both a viable social force and an informal educational system, we ask ourselves today: Does every girl recognize that she can join Girl Scouting - any time, any where? The importance and relevance of the Girl Scout program is that we are here to help all girls grow strong. So far, more than 50 million women have had the experience. Most of them are happy and successful - some of them famous, In fact, two thirds of all women listed in Who's Who in American Women are Girl Scout alumni!They all had the chance to develop leadership skills. This is one way that Girl Scouting helps girls grow strong - how Girl Scouting helps ( today's girls become tom rrow s leaders. Today, we move forward with a renewed commitment to ensuring that every girl can benefit from the unique cxperiences of the Girl Scout program. With 3.7 million members, Girl Scouting wants all girls to have the opportunities they nced to discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Indeed, Girl Scouting is fl)r every girl, everywhere!
