Free Being Me

Images of girls and women in the media are of great interest to girls today. Through a partnership with Dove and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), Girl Scouts of the USA have launched Free Being Me, a global leadership initiative focused on helping girls better understand global definitions of beauty, define beauty for themselves and boost their self-confidence in the process.
 
Free Being Me will help girls ages 7-10 & 11-14 understand from a global perspective that a greater diversity of beauty exists and give them opportunity to take action to promote this diversity to girl locally and globally. Importantly, Free Being Me can be used to introduce or enhance girls’ experiences along the It’s Your Story—Tell It! leadership journey series.
