Something for the Girls Summary


Almost half of all women in the UK have been involved in Girlguiding at some stage in their lives. With over 10 million members in 145 countries, the movement has had an impact like none other on the lives of women around the world.Here is the extraordinary story of Girlguiding past and present, from six young girls' first request 100 years ago for 'something for the girls', to the organization's current campaign to give young girls a voice. It includes the true account of Guide Leaders being among the first to enter Belsen at the end of the Second World War, the colourful details of Beatrix Potter's involvement, the introduction of Brownies, Rainbows and Rangers, the close participation of the Royal Family, and recent feats such as the Everest balloon challenge, the Tall Ships race and ongoing development projects around the world.This colourful and inspirational book will appeal to all adult members past and present as well as current Guides, Brownies and Rainbows. It is a centenary volume to treasure.
