As the mom of a Girl Scout, I'm appalled that the Girl Scouts would participate in this inauguration. Girl Scouts of the USA (the organization) tells the story that it is a champion of Girl Scouts (the girls) who have chosen to participate. GSUSA also touts the girls' participation as celebrating civic engagement and the workings of our democratic government. Together, these two claims are disingenuous and cowardly.
Becoming a mother changes your world. Being a BADASS MAMA makes you a world changer.
As Badass Mamas, we rise up to heed the call of motherhood: be better, make our world better. Our uprising is deeply personal, but doesn’t happen alone. Together, we cultivate the potential within ourselves, our children, our communities, and the human family to grow in resilience, creativity, and compassion.
