I posted here about a month ago as to why the Girl Guides in this country dont
have male/female leadership. If the GSUSA were in Australia, they would bein
breach of the EO Act, where as under current arrangements, they are not.
If they accepted male leaders, they would then have to accpet by law, males in
the youth ranks.
Same applies to the Scouts. Thy made a descion years ago to mix certain
sections, whick means thay had toaccpet females across the board.
If they had not accpeted females at all (and this is something they did during
one of the WW's due to them men fighting) then Scouting in Australia would
still be male only!
Easy as that guys.
