100 years ago, at a Boy Scout Rally at Crystal Palace, a group of courageous girls slipped in. In days when showing their ankles or merely putting their arms above their heads was frowned on, they wanted to do exciting things like going for hikes and climbing trees. They asked Robert Baden-Powell for something for the girls and Girl Guiding was started, and a very daring prospect it was too. It's still great fun, giving girls exciting opportunities that they might not otherwise have.
