Last Sunday Girl Scouts from all over the state joined the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin in celebrating the centennial of the 19th amendment at “First to Ratify”. This event focused on the importance of suffrage and the impact the amendment has had over the past 100 years. Girl Scouts had the opportunity to give speeches, lead the march around Capitol Square, make their own suffragette sash, and pick out their own ‘future voter’ sticker. Beyond this, Girl Scouts also got to have a taste of what’s it’s like to be an active civilian and vote on the issues they care about. These are the issues Girl Scouts said are nearest to their hearts.
From Gender Equality to the Environment, Girl Scouts have a wide range of interests and consistently work towards making the world a better place.
