On February 2, the Girl Scouts of the USA Public Policy and Advocacy office celebrated National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Capitol Hill along with female athletes, the Women’s Sports Foundation, Girls’ Incorporated, National Association for Girls and Women in Sport, and the National Women’s Law Center.
About 25 Congressional offices were lobbied to keep the Carol M. White Physical Education Program and to introduce the High School Athletics Accountability Act (H.R. 2882). It was a significant day to promote the continued growth of opportunities for girls and women to play sports and live physically active lives.
