Default Boy Scouts To Start Allowing Girls To Join
NEW YORK (AP)
In a historic change, the Boy Scouts are announcing plans to admit girls into the Cub Scouts starting next year and to establish a new program for older girls using the same curriculum as the Boy Scouts.

Under the plan announced Wednesday, Cub Scout dens the smallest unit will be single-gender, either all-boys or all-girls. The larger Cub Scout packs will have the option to welcome both genders if they choose.

The program for older girls is expected to start in 2019 and will enable girls to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout.

Boy Scout leaders say the change is needed to provide more options for parents. The Girl Scouts organization has criticized the initiative, saying it strains the century-old bond between the two groups.

I think this is great. I can't imagine telling a little girl she couldn't join the Boy Scouts of she wanted to.

How long until they change the name to just the Scouts of America?

I'm sure there will be plenty of people who get insanely upset about this if it does lead to a name change.


And, I fully support Girl Scouts being inclusive of allowing boys into their ranks.
