The Boy Scouts Made Some Major Changes Yesterday

February 2, 2019

The Boy Scouts of America made some historic changes on Friday, dropping 'boy' from its name and welcoming girls into the organization. Back when this was first announced it was a heavily debated topic, especially after The Girl Scouts of the United States of America filed a trademark infringement lawsuit arguing that only it has "the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademark with leadership development services for girls." But despite the backlash and lawsuit the changes are now official. The parent organization will remain the Boy Scouts of America, and the Cub Scouts, its program for 7- to 10-year-olds, will keep its title, as well. But the Boy Scouts, the program for 11- to 17-year-olds, will now be Scouts BSA.
