The Canadian Girl Scouts dropped the name Brownie after the term for their younger members was deemed ‘racist’ and ‘offended’ some of its members.
The youngsters are now called Embers.
The name change was announced by Girl Guides of Canada to create a more inclusive space for the seven and eight-year-old girls branch, according to a news release by Girl Guides.
‘With this new name we’re showing girls that what they say matters, and that Girl Guides is a place for everyone to belong,’ according to a tweet Girl Guides posted.
An animated video promoting the name change shows glowing orange and red embers against a navy background. Words appear onscreen that say, “As an Ember, you have potential that’s just waiting to be unleashed.”
