GSWRC Stands Beside Her

GSWRC Stands Beside Her |
Facebook @kygirlscouts

The National Stand Beside Her Movement is a call to action for women and girls to unite our voices in a divisive world and end the comparison, competition and criticism that undermines female relationships. Together we can propel each other forward by creating an inclusive culture of support, compassion and celebration of each other's success.

GSWRC celebrates National Stand Beside Her Week by hearing from a panel of local female leaders about the importance of supporting and celebrating strong girls and women.

World Thinking Day

World Thinking Day | February 22, 2020

Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries celebrate World Thinking Day—that’s one big celebration!

Promoted by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS for short) along with Girl Scouts of the USA, World Thinking Day originated in 1926. That’s when delegates from around the globe met at Camp Edith Macy—now called Edith Macy Conference Center—in New York State and agreed that February 22 would henceforth be known as a special day for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide.

Backed by 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in locations worldwide, World Thinking Day 2020 celebrates the diversity, equity, and inclusion reflected in our global movement. Check out our activity guides below to explore this theme—and celebrate being part of the diverse global sisterhood that is Girl Guides + Girl Scouts!
