Girl Scouts of the United States v. Personality Posters Mfg Co

[1969] 304 F.Supp. 1228

Case summary last updated at 31/01/2020 17:23 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Girl Scouts of the United States v. Personality Posters Mfg Co

Poster was prepared of a pregnant girl scout wearing the organisation’s uniform next to line ‘Be Prepared’ to advertise use of contraception. Was held to be unlawful.
·       Spence: facts of case make good argument for expressive autonomy
·       I.e. had Girl Scouts not been able to stop their motto being used in this way, would have led to them being forced to
a)     express a message about sex with which they disagreed
b)    subsidise a message with which they did not want to be associated
