“Stand Beside Her” Week to Support Women and Girls




Memphis, TN – Girl Scouts Heart of the South invites the public to join us to celebrate National Stand Beside Her Week during October 25–31, 2015. National Stand Beside Her Week is a nationwide initiative designed to inspire women to support, encourage and mentor other women in their careers and their lives.

Why do we need National Stand Beside Her Week? Because despite decades of progress, women are still under-represented in leadership roles in our nation’s government, business and industry.  Girl Scouts Heart of the South is encouraging women and businesses to take one or more of the following positive actions next week:

  • Enter the nationwide I Stand Video Contest:

Show us how you Stand Beside Her in the I Stand Video Contest and you could win an amazing getaway for four to Universal Studios Orlando! Contest page, submission and official rules are available online at

Join the national conversation on Twitter on Wednesday, October 28 at 8 p.m. Central Daylight Time. We will discuss ways to created more collaboration between women. Use the #StandBesideHer hashtag to participate in the conversation.

As the premiere girls’ leadership organization in the Mid-South, Girl Scouts Heart of the South created National Stand Beside Her Week to combat these negative attitudes among women and girls.  Only by changing the attitudes absorbed by girls and teens will women feel free to develop to their full academic, career and leadership potential. Please visit our website: to learn more about National Stand Beside Her week.

The mission of Girl Scouting is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.   Girl Scouts Heart of the South encompasses 59 counties in east Arkansas, north Mississippi and west Tennessee.  The headquarters are located in Memphis, TN and regional service centers are located in Jackson, TN, Tupelo, MS, and Corinth, MS.  To find out more, visit them online at

Girl Scouts Heart of the South and the Memphis Fire Department are teaming up to host HERo Day, a high adventure career exploration day for girls in grades  6th-12th designed to give them a glimpse into the thrilling world of fire and emergency medical services.  The event will be held on October 3, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Chester Anderson Training Center, 4341 OK Robertson Rd, Memphis, TN 38127.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics only 3.7% of career firefighters are female. Girl Scouts believes that when it comes to careers, “if she can see it, she can be it.” Showing girls that women can succeed in fire or emergency medical service opens a world of career opportunities for them. The mission of HERo Day is to provide positive female role models for girls in these traditionally male-dominated fields.

On HERO Day, girls will have the unique opportunity to train alongside elite members of the Memphis Fire Department as they rappel from a two story building, experience simulated firefighting environments, learn Hands Only CPR, suit up in protective gear and tackle a life-saving obstacle course, meet women and men from the Memphis Fire Department and learn about the physical and educational requirements to become a member of the department.

Any girl in grade 6 to 12 may register for HERo Day, but pre-registration is required. Event fee is $20 per girls, which includes lunch, commemorative bandana and HERo Day patch. Girls can register online now until Friday, September 18 at
