Starting in childhood girls are inundated with negative messages and behaviors that prevent them from building healthy relationships and ideals about their potential. Girls keep these unhealthy ideals and relationships as they mature into women. The competition and comparison formed on the playground and in the classroom carries over to the boardroom and in the home preventing women from reaching their fullest potential.
Stand Beside Her is a rallying cry inspiring girls and women to stand up for each other and commit to shutting down unhealthy comparison that tears down and divides. By celebrating one another’s talents and successes, we all rise - one courageous, confident girl and woman at a time.

The National Stand Beside Her Movement encourages people to commit to supporting girls and women in their lives, their home, their office and in their community.
National Stand Beside Her Week is celebrated annually during the week containing October 31 - Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday - and serves as the kick-off to National Stand Beside Her Month which is celebrated each November.
Low’s life work was about supporting, developing and mentoring strong girls and women. This is most evident in the Girl Scout Law;
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
