Pittsburgh, PA – The increased scrutiny of the fashion industry and its use of ultra-thin models isn’t without validation, as nearly 9 in 10 American teenage girls say that the fashion industry is at least partially responsible for “girls’ obsession with being skinny,” according to a national survey released this month by the Girl Scouts of the USA.

What goes better than Girl Scout cookies and milk? Girl Scouts and computers. For that reason, Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is providing new online marketing tools to help girls add an even greater competitive edge to their sales techniques.
