The Scouting movement's female branch began in 1908, soon after Robert Baden-Powell saw that girls were taking part in the scouting movement. With his sister Agnes, the project of an outdoors program for girls was begun. Olave Baden-Powell, the founders wife, took up the cause and became the Chief Guide of the World. The movement invarious countries is called Girl Guides or Girl Scouts. In countries with a coeducational program there are often units for girls only.
