First Girl Scout: The Life of Juliette Gordon Low

Amazon.com Rating:

Just in time for the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts in 2012, a lavishly illustrated account of the fascinating life of the woman who started it all! Juliette (Daisy) Gordon Low was a remarkable woman with ideas that were ahead of her time. She witnessed important eras in U.S. history, from the Civil War and Reconstruction to westward expansion to post-World War I. And she made history by founding the first national organization to bring girls from all backgrounds into the out-of-doors.

Daisy created controversy by encouraging them to prepare not only for traditional homemaking but also for roles as professional women — in the arts, sciences, and business — and for active citizenship outside the home. Her group also welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were usually excluded.
