Monday marks the 100th Anniversary for Girl Scouts. CEO Maria Wynne and current Girl Scout Kierra Franklin visited ABC7 to celebrate the special birthday.


Girl Scouts is using the occasion of its centennial to declare 2012 the Year of the Girl and to launch ToGetHerThere, the largest, boldest advocacy and fundraising cause campaign dedicated to girls' leadership issues in the nation's history. This multiyear effort will help break down societal barriers that hinder girls from leading and achieving success in everything from technology and science to business and industry.

The long-term goal is ambitious and urgent: to create balanced leadership in one generation. For more information on Year of the Girl and ToGetHerThere, including how you can join the cause, check out girl.
