Today the girl scouts celebrate women as part of girl scout week. Wednesday is women’s Wednesday and did you know before women could vote Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts foundation. Her goal was to give women the chance to learn and grow and have an opportunity to be their very best. The Public Relations Specialist at The Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland Lauren Slamb says today is a day when all women should wear purple.

Purple is the color of International Women’s day and that started all the way back in the 20th century.
