Annotated Biblography

See what the teachers did there? Annotated Biblography – haha. Here is my complete list of resources that I used to delve into the depths of Lady Baden Powell’s life. A short history of Guiding and Scouting, some interesting quotes and pictures. There’s not much in-depth here though, and the main focus is clearly not Lady BP.

The Vancouver Public Library: built after the circular shape of the Roman Coliseum, this is my favourite place to make a day trip.. Read More

Lady Olave Baden Powell

Lady Baden Powell is the eminent person I will be studying for the next four weeks. In my opinion, she is a fantabulous person who showed persistence and dignity while struggling against gender inequality; she helped empower many girls and provided a strong female role model for them. Born in 1889, Mrs. Baden Powell was an Englishwoman. Her father was a brewer and artist, and because he moved from place to.. Read More
