The Boy Scouts of America will now admit girls into Cub Scouts and allow them to earn Eagle Scout Rank, the organization announced Wednesday. This is the highest honor a scout can rank and the organization said the move was made in an effort to evolve and foster future female leaders.

"We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children," said Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts.

The change will take effect next year. Listen to what Pat had to say about the move in today's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed."

Is this a genuine effort to evolve or is this just another way of pandering to progressives?
