WHilest having some off line exchanges, the question came up
about when (dates) if anyone knows, when the first females
were elected into the OA, and when they completed the ordeal etc.
I have heard various legends and rumours, concering the
first females, and would like to know the facts.
I have also heard, and SEEN exploring females (youth aged)
that were elected back in the early 70's when Exploring
was first made COED. However, in at least some (maybe all)
cases they were not allowed to take the ordeal, as far as
Does anyone have any real facts/information about when or
if any YOUTH aged females completed an Ordeal?
How about the first female adult?
I know of one that was elected in 1972. Does anyone have
any before that date?
Is this a mater of record in any published books etc.?
