Girl Scouts advocate for skilled ‘girl force’ on International Day of the Girl Child Oct. 11

Girls and women drive nearly 80 percent of all consumer spending, but are only paid about 80 cents for every dollar men make. Girls’ dollars matter, and on the International Day of the Girl Child, October 11, Girl Scouts of the USA is advocating for building a skilled girl force of smart, employable, and financially literate leaders. Girl Scout Cadette Kacilynn Hernandez-Feliciano of Newton, 14, is one of those leading the way.
