The Colorado Women's Hall of Fame is
Excited to Partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado
Founding of Girl Scouts: In March 1912, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low brought the first group of girls together in Savannah, Georgia, where she wanted them to explore new possibilities and the wonders of the world around them—and she wanted them to do it together. These first Girl Scouts blazed trails and redefined what was possible for themselves and for girls everywhere.
