From Wikipedia:

"Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are movements similar to Scouting. They were originally, and are still largely, for girls and women only. Girl Guides evolved in 1909 from girls wishing to take part in the boy-only Scout movement. In some places, girls attempted to join Scouting organisations and it was decided that single-gender organisations were a better solution. In other places, girls' groups were started, some of them later to open up to boys or merge with boys' organisations. In other instances, mixed groups were formed. The name Girl Guide or Girl Scout has been used by groups at different times and in different places. In 1909 Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, when faced with an increasing number of girls wishing to take part in Scouting, decided that girls should have their own movement, and the Girl Guides were founded in the UK in 1910. The name "Guides" was taken from a famous frontier regiment in the British Indian army, the Corps of Guides, which was noted for its skills in tracking and survival. There has been much discussion about how similar Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting should be to boys' Scouting programs. While many girls saw what the boys were doing and wanted to do it too, girls' organizations have sought to avoid simply copying or mimicking the boys..."
