The Girl Scout organization was founded on this day in 1912 by 
Juliette Gordon Low (above) (1860-1927). The original name was 
Girl Guides.

A meeting in 1912 with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of
Boy Scouts, inspired Juliette to establish Girl Scouts that same
year. The first gathering was a small troop of 18 culturally and
ethnically diverse girls. The organization serves millions of girl
members today.
