 Girl Guides were the female branch of the scouting movement. The organisation was established formally in the U.K. in 1910 under the management of Agnes Baden-Powell, sister of Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout Movement.

The organisation, which developed internationally, sought to offer citizenship training and to develop domestic, physical fitness and survival skills.

The Browniesa junior branch of the organisation, was set up in 1914.

Today in Britain, girls and young women between the ages of 5 and 25 may join the organisation Girlguiding UK where the terms 'brownie' and 'guide' are still in use.
