The Girl Guides

Listen in pop-out player

Today Gemma Hunt finds out about the creation of the Girl Guides over 100 years ago and visits some present-day Brownies and Guides to discover how things have changed. In the story we hear how the Guides were formed after a group of girls, who wanted to be Scouts like their brothers, heckled Robert Baden-Powell at a rally in 1909 and he persuaded his sister, Agnes, to be president of a new Girl Guide organisation.
