“You don’t want to grow up to be a character in a book. You want to grow up to be a powerful woman.”

Meet Girl Scout Troop 3484 (Greater New York), an inspiring group of young activists on a determined mission to spread awareness about the Monumental Women campaign from the Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to placing the first statue honoring real women in New York City’s Central Park.

Watch as the scouts, who’ve already raised and contributed $1,920 to the historic cause, explain why their efforts are important to everyone… not just girls.
