International Women’s Day 2022
For International Women’s Day 2022 we wanted to give the girls a shout out, and in turn we received some lovely comments from the ladies in our community:
“Scouting is so much better for having opened its doors. I am old enough to have been excluded as a child so I did Brownies and Guides which just weren’t for me. At nearly 14 I told my dad I’d had enough and he uttered the immortal words: you should try Venturers. To which I responded: what’s that? Long story short I am a Queen Scout and a leader with 2 children in the Movement and I am such a devotee of scouting and what it offers ALL children – and adults.” – Rachel M
“A big thank you Scouts for opening scouts up for females back when I was young early 90’s. I was one of the first Female Joey Scout at Caboolture den. I remember being so happy when my mum told me I could join, as my older brother was a cub and I wasn’t allowed to join until Scouts allowed Females. And now I’m a leader and both my children are in Scouting.” – Sarah M
“I did Guides as Scouts was just for boys, now both my girls are Scouts and LOVE it!” – Rebecca E
