Boy Scouts Of America To Allow Girls To Join, Earn Eagle Scout Rank

In her own words, Jasmin Fields-Robinson is making history.

She is among the first girls on Long Island to join the Cub Scouts following a decision last fall by the Boy Scouts of America to open up scouting to both genders.

“I actually feel very proud of myself for being one of the few girls that enrolled in Cub Scouts . . . (for) just making history,” the 10-year-old said.
