Growing up during the late 1800s, Juliette (Daisy) Gordon Low loved climbing trees, caring for her menagerie of dear pets, and swimming with her cousins. She also enjoyed creating plays, drawing, and reaching out to help those less fortunate than her.
Aware that not all girls had the same opportunities to indulge in outdoor activities, Daisy was determined to make a change. As an adult, she founded the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. Daisy also courted controversy by encouraging girls to pursue professional roles outside of the home, and her organization was open to girls from all races and ethnicities, as well as those with disabilities, which was not typical during her era.
