Why we need Girl Scouts

Betsey Bayless

The Boy Scouts announced they are opening their doors to girls. I see their move as a grave disservice to girls. And a cynical response to their financial problems and declining enrollment. There are very few girl-only spaces today.

Girls need a safe space where they can be themselves and build confidence. A place where being female is seen as positive, with inherent strengths.

Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls, offering hands-on programs designed to meet girls’ specific needs. We all have a stake in ensuring this essential organization continues to help girls thrive.
