First, the Order of the Arrow is an honor society for the Boy Scout
division of the BSA. This includes Troops and Teams (Varsity
Scouts). No one can be elected by a Venturing Crew, male or female.
Second, to be elected, you must hold at least First Class rank.
Since females cannot earn rank (no one can earn rank below First
class in a Crew), this also makes them not electable.
Either of these requirements be themselves makes it impossible for
female Crew members to be elected. Both would have to be changed for
that to happen.
