Girls 'Rightful Places' By Congresman Nick Rahall had successful women speak to their This year, Girl Scouts of the USA school or class, or offer "girls like celebrates 100 e rs ot buldln tl]emselves tlmr, . courage,, confideahfl' dla?hcte#. orkprace.' The study also revhls What started as oe tro.p, in that wllilegirls are sttJl generglly: Savannah, Georgia, grew into a optimistic'about tileir futures, close . movement that today encompasses ' more than three million members and fifty million alumnae. When Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low created the Girl Scouts organization in 1912, her purpose was "to train girls to take their rightful places in litb, first as good women, then as good citizens, wives, and mothers." For several years after the death of her husband, Low searched for something useful to do with her life. Upon meeting Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides in England, Low was so impressed with his youth movement she formed the first troop of 18 American Girl Guides, as the Girl Scouts were first known, on March 12, 1912. What is especially important about the Girl Scouts' rich history of supporting women's leadership is their insistence on being a voice tbr. all girls, regardless of thei  background or neighborhood. As early as 1917, the first African- - American troops were established, as well as troops for disabled girls. Girl Scout troops supported Japanese-American girls in internment camps in the 1940s, and :- by the 1950s, Girl Scouts was leading the charge to fully integrate all of its troops. In 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., called Girl Scouts "a force for desegregation." Girl Scouts of tim USA declared 2012 the Year of the Girl to focus national attention on girls and the issues they face. They also formed a new cause, "ToGetHerThere," aimed at creating balanced leadership in one generation, and' encouraging every member of society to do our part in supporting and advocating on behalf of girls. This is an important goal. Democracy works best when the perspectives and voices of all its citizens are heard.. By having more diversity in leadership - whether it's gender, religion, race or socioeconomic background - our country will make stronger, more representative choices, and will ensure that the interests of all of our citizens are heard. There is a tremendous role for women in West Virginia to play in helping the Girl Scouts achieve their goals. A comprehensive new research study comnfissioned by Girl Scouts called "ToGetHerThere: Girls' Insights about Leadership," suggests that girls need accessible ! leadership role models to emulate, with the majority of them saying they have never, or almost never, to three out of five girls think that while a woman can rise up in a company, she will only rarely be put in the very top leadership role. Additionally, 81 percent of 13- to 17- year-old girls believe the workplace could do a better job of meeting tim needs of their female workers. At, the public is asked join the cause to inspire girls by: * Becoming informed, learning about the need to solve this issue for girls today, and how a successful female leader positively impacts the world around her. * Speak!ng up for supportive environments in local communities, such as advocating healthy media images, helping identify effective mentors, increasing girls' involvement in (STEM), and joining the fight against bullying. * Investing in gdrls to invest in the future. As a leadership development organization for girls, Girl Scouts is a leading authority on girls' healthy development. The invaluable qualities the organization instills in young women have inspired leaders such as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Labor Secretary Hilda Sol,s, tennis star Venus Williams, singer Taylor Swift, and more than 20 of NASA's career astronauts. While we have made tremendous progress in fostering women's leadership over the past century, there is much more to be done. We can do better for our' girls and for ourselves. We can't transform societal barriers that hinder achieving full potential and success in one year, but we can raise awareness and expectations one child at a :time. U.S. Rep.
