Something for the Girls: The Official Guide to the First 100 Years of Guiding
This is the history of the birth and evolution of guiding for the past 100 years. After the formation of the Scouts movement by Baden-Powell their sisters wanted, ‘something for the girls’. Since its formation almost half of all women in the UK have been involved in guiding at some point in their lives. Today, with over 10 million members, this is a club that has become world-wide. Girls from all walks of life, including members of the royal family, are able to meet on an equal footing, finding a common fellowship in a range of pursuits. In this handsome volume, photographs, letters and personal records tell the story of the first 100 years. A wonderful souvenir for all who have and those who still do participate in the Girl Guide Movement.
