There are no Female Eagle Scouts. It's impossible.
While females can be a member of Explorers & Venturers, they can not earn
This is because a requirement for earning Eagle Scout in Explorers or
is that First Class must be earned in a Boy Scout Troop. Since a female
a youth member in a Boy Scout troop or earn First Class, they can't earn
Only male Explorers or Ventureres can earn Star/Life/Eagle in these units,
that he have earned First Class in a Boy Scout Troop.
Hope this clears this up.
