The First Girl Guide

In 1909 Sir Robert Baden-Powell's rally of Boy Scouts at the crystal palace was joined by 2,000 'Girl Scouts'. In an age where single sex education and heavy chaperoning until marriage was the norm, Sir Robert Baden-Powell recognised that a separate organisation for girls was necessary, and his sister 'Agnes was seen to be the person to lead it'. The First Girl Guide, The Story of Agnes Baden-Powell is the first ever biography of the extraordinary, and often overlooked, creator of the guiding movement.

Interspersed with the recollections of those who met her, this book presents the vivid and fascinating history of a life riddled with challenges. Combining Agnes' personal history with a rich and detailed account of the foundation and development of the Guiding movement, The First Girl Guide will prove an invigorating read to those within the guiding movement and to the general reader.
