Girl Scouts will not allow boys to join

The "girl" in Girl Scouts is staying. The announcement came on Wednesday in Detroit as the scouts' CEO spoke.

VOTE: Should Girl Scouts allow boys to join?

Sylvia Acevedo spoke in Detroit and said she was blindsided by the announcement that the Boy Scouts would begin allowing girls into their ranks. 

She also said that there are no plans to allow boys into the Girl Scouts.

"We know girls in an all-girl environment from age 5 to age 18 are able to take greater risks," Acevedo said.
