Agnes Baden-Powell

Agnes Baden-PowellAgnes Baden-Powell was Robert Baden-Powell's sister. She was a very accomplished and educated woman, and was an excellent musician, a collector of birds, butterflies and bees, and an admired cook and housekeeper. She also had knowledge of eleven languages, cycled, swum and skated, and stitched - and then went up in - hot air balloons! She even helped one of her brothers build aeroplanes. But of course she is best known for establishing, at her brother's request, the female equivalent of Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts, the Girl Guides.

In 1912 she became President of the Girl Guide Association, and she published the first Girl Guide handbook, "The Handbook for the Girl Guides or How Girls Can Help to Build Up the Empire", in the same year. In 1916, when her sister-in-law Olave became Chief Guide, Agnes became President.

"Girls must be partners and comrades, rather than dolls."
