Girl Scouts sue for Boy Scout for changing name

The girl scouts of the United States of America filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America for excluding the word "boy" from the name of the scout group.

The Boy Scouts of America announced in May that they would rename the Scouts program to BSA Scouts as they prepare to allow girls to join them.
But girl scouts say the change could undermine their brand.
Their lawsuit requires damages and an injunction against trademark infringement.
"Only GSUSA has the right to use Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls," according to documents filed with the federal court in Manhattan.
They report that this has already caused confusion, and some believe that their organization has merged with the scouts.
In response, the Boy Scouts of America made a statement saying that they had reviewed the lawsuit and believed that "both organizations have the opportunity to accept both girls and boys into their communities." In October 2017, the Boy Scout Board of Directors unanimously voted to open the program for all children. Scouts Cub opened its local clubs to all children aged 7 to 10 in 2018. Boy scouts between the ages of 11 and 17 will follow in his footsteps next year, when the name change program becomes official.
But girl scouts protested against this decision when the group’s president, Katie Hopinkh Hannan, accused them of a “secret campaign” to accept the girls, since their membership is declining.
It is reported that boys scouts have about 2.3 million people in the United States, which is a third less than since 2000, compared with about 2 million members for girl scouts.
