I saw a bulletin about my town’s first All-Girls’ Boy Scout of America troop. What? That’s not a typo or error. We’ll soon have an All-Girls’ Boy Scout troop. I don’t know who’s organizing it.
I think it’s possibly because of the revered Eagle Scout achievement, which perhaps the girls and/or organizers think is better than the Girl Scout’s Gold Award.
Another thought is that the Girl Scouts of America HQ takes more of the money from the sale of the cookies than the Boy Scouts do from their local troops’ fundraising. Probably it’s about the finances and the perceived status.
