Also on Wednesday, Scouts BSA announced a new campaign for the Cub Scouts, "Scout Me In", that features female Cub Scouts. Back in 2013, the group lifted a ban on openly gay members and in 2015, it dropped its prohibition against gay scout leaders. It's the Boy Scouts program that is for teens ages 11 to 17 that is changing its name, and that's because as of February 2019, girls will be allowed to join in on the fun.

It also retaliated to the Boy Scouts' name-change announcement this week with a blog post entitled, "No Contest: Girl Scouts is the BEST Leadership Organization for Girls", citing research that girls learn best in all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environments.
