Sociology Professor Weighs In On Boy Scout's Decision To Welcome Girls

Earlier this month, the Boy Scouts of America announced that girls will be welcomed into some scouting programs, including its Cub Scouts program in 2018.
Individual, already-existing packs, will have the option to remain boys only.
There has been some backlash to the announcement, but others believe it’s long past time to phase out or eliminate organizations that are limited to one gender or another.
With me to talk about that is C.J. Pascoe, associate professor of sociology at the University of Oregon.
