As you know, if you read this blog, Great Escape supports Girl Scout Adults, Girl Scouting and Girl Scout camps. Some people say to me that girls no longer need an all-girl environment because we have equality now, right?
Wrong. Look what I saw in a store today.
And the publisher perpetrating these stereotypes? Scholastic. The one that sends those annoying flyers home urging parents to buy 'books' that are just tie-ins to the latest Disney movies and the toys and video games of the moment. These messages are being sent to girls at school.
We still need Girl Scout camp where girls can forget their appearance, have adventures, get messy, and learn to be the best at everything.
