Accepting Girls a Welcome Change in Boy Scouts of America Founder's Hometown

"They're all good core values to have". They say the all-girl environment of the Girl Scouts helps girls grow up with more confidence and independence than in a co-ed environment. "Why not just put them [Boy and Girl Scouts] together and you could probably accomplish more with the kids ..." "There is no boy and girl things". Stone said they've been pushing for full inclusion.

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts pledge to be friendly and helpful.

"At Girl Scouts, we focus on the all-girl, girl-led, safe space that makes Girl Scouts the best girl leadership experience in the world".

Our approach to empowering girls and young women, is a proven method for preparing women leaders.

The Girl Scouts of the U.S. have criticized the initiative, saying it strains the century-old bond between the two organizations.

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", Garcia wrote in the Huffington Post.

In August, the president of the Girl Scouts accused the Boy Scouts of seeking to covertly recruit girls into their programs while disparaging the Girl Scouts' operations. Indeed, girls have been joining Boy Scout troops for years on a case-by-case basis.

"Only 4 percent right now earn the rank of Eagle Scout", Skelly told VOA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Neil Armstrong and Former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates are just a few notable men who have attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Or do "boys need time to be boys and girls need time to be girls"? "As a young woman, those opportunities are hard to come by".
