• Smith College Now Admitting ‘Transgender’ Women

    One of the country’s oldest and most prestigious all-women colleges has decided to start enrolling transgender students.

    Smith College announced over the weekend that it will admit transgender women to a school known as a bastion of female education.  The new policy opens the school to “gender non-binary” students, those who claim they are part of a third gender, all genders, or no genders at all.

    The college also noted that biological females who identify as men will still be excluded from admission, as “Smith does not accept applications from men.” However, female students who begin transitioning to a male identity after matriculating will not face any consequences.

    Smith previously refused to admit transgender students and required that applicants have been consistently identified as female from birth, but reversed its policy after spending a year formally studying the possibility,

    Chartered in 1871 and located in Northampton, Massachusetts, Smith is the first female college founded by a women in the United States.

    The school’s notable alumnae include First Lady Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan, feminist icons and Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Sylvia Plath and author personality Julia Child. Smith will begin accepting transgender students who identify as women this fall and those graduates can be joined by biological men, provided those men no longer identify as such.
