Question about Japanese

Does かしら have any intrinsic meaning? As far as I know it's used similar to "I wonder" or "I suppose" in English, but I'm wondering if it "means" anything or if it's more like words like ね or よ that add meaning to the sentence but don't really mean anything on their own.

(I know かしら means other things, but I'm talking about when it's used as "I wonder".)
