Very important for everyone to celebrate and support these local pro-women groups to counter Republican Party's national war on women.

Its a 100 year celebration for the Girl Scouts, not a political rally. Lets try to appreciate it for what is (a historical celebration), and thankfully what it is not (a political rally).

Republican congressman calls the Girl Scouts a radical organization of feminists, lesbians and communists. ABC News report: Web Link

Really hard to celebrate the Girl Scouts without defending them against the Republican War On Women.
