About the Exhibit:

Girl Power!

February 22, 2013 - September 29, 2013

In partnership with Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas, "Girl Power!" is an exhibit that heralds the next century of Girl Scouting. The exhibit will offer visitors a unique perspective on the iconic organization. Through personal stories, artifacts and memorabilia, the exhibit will highlight the values and traditions of Girl Scouts that are as relevant today as when the movement was founded in 1912.
What began with 18 girls on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, set into motion the nation’s premier leadership program for girls. A century ago, Juliette Gordon Low believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. These values have empowered more than 59 million American women to advance and achieve, taking their places as leaders in community, business, and government. (MORE)
