As you all know, all of us Scouters are proud of the knots we earn serving

Boy Scouts can wear that knot on their leaders uniform.
Does any one know if there has ever been an attempt to create a knot
for female leaders who earned their First Class Girl Scout or Gold Award
as it is now called? If not, what would be the steps to accomplish something
like this? As more and more female leaders join the ranks of BSA, we should
be recognized for our accomplishments when we were young ladies.

Probably the best place to start would be with National, but it may not
get very far. It probably would not happen unles GSA were to agree,
and if GSA were to see this as a way to "back door" a merger (toward
Girl Guides), it would be met with, likely, VERY stiff resistance.
