Girl Scouts Shadow Congresswomen on Take Our Daughters to Congress Day

Roll Call, The Newspaper of Capitol Hill, reports that on April 13, 2011, Girl Scouts interested in careers as political leaders shadowed Congresswomen one-on-one for four hours to learn what it’s really like to be an elected official.

Representative Jackie Speier took her scout with her when she talked on the House floor and later brought her to an Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.
