Lord Robert Baden-Powell started the Scouting Movement in 1908 in the United Kingdom. He felt that girls should have their own organization, so Robert Baden-Powell chose the name "Girl Guides" and thought that an organization for girls should be run by women so he asked his elder sister, Agnes, to help and, in 1910, the Girl Guide movement was formally founded.

Various countries, including the USA, have chosen the term "Girl Scout".

The first Girl Scout troop in the United States was started by Juliette Gordon Low.
