The State of Girls
Read new Girl Scout study
Girls are well educated.
Girls are less likely to commit crimes than boys.
The teen birth rate is at its lowest recorded level.
Many girls are physically active and participate in sports.
Most girls are digitally connected.
While there is promising news for girls in many areas, girls are being left behind, and not all girls are faring the same. In particular, black/African American and Hispanic/Latina girls face significant challenges in making successful transitions to adulthood. However, we know that "data is not destiny" and Girl Scouts is committed to ensuring all girls reach their full potential.
