This research is brought to you by the generous support of the The David and Lura Lovell Foundation.
The Girl Scout Research Institute recently conducted a national research study of 3,000 girls and 1,000 boys ages 8–21 to better understand how young people define, experience, and aspire toward leadership now and in the future.
The findings in this report—the first in a two-part series—focus on gender, politics, and civic engagement. For example:
Youth today know women have what it takes to succeed in politics and they want more equal gender representation in Congress.
Girls and young women are finding ways to civically engage and take action!
And looking into the future, girls want to take the lead in public service and advocacy!
