Happy Birthday Juliette Gordon Low

A Day Dedicated to Girl Scout’s Founder

Portrait of Juliette Gordon Low
On Halloween, a day that many associate with ghosts and spirits of the past, Girl Scouts the world over celebrate the life of their founder Juliette Gordon Low, who was born October 31, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia.

Low's vision—to see girls blossom into productive and responsible women—led her at age 51 to form the Girl Scouts. What began on March 12, 1912, as a small gathering of 18 girls has flourished into an international movement with 3.7 million girl and adult members today, and guaranteed the Girl Scouts its place in history as the preeminent organization for and leading authority on girls.
