As American women seek a larger role in politics, fairer wages and an end to sexual harassment, the Girl Scouts see an opportune time to show some swagger in promoting their core mission: girl empowerment. They recruited Queen Latifah to narrate a video featuring famous former Girl Scouts — Venus Williams, Katie Couric and many more. And they indulged in a little bragging when Girl Scout alumna Meghan Markle married into Britain's royal family. "Life is always better with a Girl Scout by your side, and Prince Harry truly hit the jackpot," enthused a post on Girl Scout Blog. But the marketing campaign is about more than boasting. It's also an effort to confront several high-stakes challenges, including reversing a long slide in membership, making the case for all-girl scouting after the rival Boy Scouts included girls and updating the organization's curriculum for a new generation that expects more than cookies and camping. "What's happening in society as a whole makes … [Read more...] about Girl Scouts Fight Membership Decline With ‘Girl Power’ Messaging

The news from retailing lately has been anything but encouraging. Dominating the headlines are stories about the struggles of Macy's (M), Sears Holdings (SHLD) and JCPenney (JCP) -- and many other names, both venerable and new -- that are closing stores and laying off thousands as consumer spending shifts to Amazon (AMZN) and other online outlets. But the picture isn't entirely bleak.
