In May of last year the Boy Scouts of America began accepting girls and that integration process is happening with Troop 1140 in Brussels. Chairman Mike Verhagen says that girls and boys mingle as Cub Scouts but they become separate troops as they get older.
Last year the Girls Scouts of the USA sued the Boy Scouts of America for trademark infringement. Even among the general public, confusion exists as to what allowing girls into the renamed Scouts BSA means. In practice, girls are organized as separate troops with women in the leadership positions. That means girl Scouts are a viable alternative to Girl Scouts teaching different values and focusing on separate activities.
