GSKWR Stands Beside Her

GSKWR Stands Beside Her | May 2, 2023
Virtual Program | 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.

GSKWR 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.
