Op-ed: Trans Men, Trans Women, and Surrendering the Sisterhood at Women’s Colleges

the article

A Mills senior and cisgender female ally recently spoke to me about a change she’s seen at her school in the past four years. Mills, she said, was starting to feel like “a college for people of marginalized genders” — trans men, trans women, cis women, and nonbinary folks.

Perhaps this is a path some women’s colleges will follow Mills down. Most probably won’t, however, and none should have to. Sisterhood should still have a place in academia as long as there are women — cisgender and transgender — who desire it.
