Back on October 11, 2017, the Boy Scouts of America made a monumental shift in their policy regarding who they will allow to become a member of their program when they unanimously approved and announced they would admit girls into Cub Scouting beginning this year (2018). They also established a brand new program for older girls that will enable them to pursue a rank of Eagle Scout.

The Boy Scouts were founded in 1910 and have seen several changes, other than this one, recently including the acceptance of openly gay youth members, adult volunteers and transgender boys as well.

In discussing this issue with several people, most wondered, as I did, as to why girls would want to join the Cub Scouts over becoming a member of the Girl Scouts?  So what do you think?
