For National Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate women who continue every day to show the world that courage, confidence, and character are alive and well in our modern age. Here are four inspiring women who exemplify the Girl Scout Mission and who have risen to meet the challenges in their careers and lives with grace and grit. Ladies, we salute your efforts and the unsung heroes who work hard every day to make the world a better place for future generations of women everywhere.  

1.Major Tammy Duckworth: Veteran

2. Margaret Wild: Wildlife Veterinarian

3. Erin Schlager: Bioscience Technician and Park Ranger

4. Sri: Gold Award Recipient and 2013 National Young Women of Distinction

Now that you have heard these amazing stories, explore the story teller in every girl through the Storytelling Badges available in the It’s Your World, Change it! Journey badge sets.  Girl Scout Brownies can discover their family story, while Juniors explore the power of the pen, Cadettes experiment with screenwriting and Seniors find out just what it takes to write a novel. In the words of poet Muriel Rukeyser, “the universe is made of stories, not atoms” and Girl Scouts is excited to see what the next generation of story tellers can do. Make sure to visit GSUSA’s photo wall and upload a photo to share your Girl Scout story with others or share it through art by designing a mural and then seeking out a place in your community to display it.
