Challenging a century-old rule.

When it comes to the Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, I know that everyone’s experience is quite different. People either love it, aren’t crazy about it or simply don’t know too much about the organizations. Girl Scouts was a huge part of my younger sister’s life but I only managed to be in a group for about one year. Yeah, I ate most of the cookies that year and yes, I already knew as a 9-year-old that camping and sleeping on the ground was simply not for me. Ha!

Yet, there’s one 15-year-old girl who is looking to make big waves for the Boy Scouts. In fact, she wants to change a 100-year-old rule by doing something that was most likely deemed completely unacceptable just a few years ago. But as we all know, it’s 2016 and times are a changin’…. but not everyone agrees.
