Mills and Mount Holyoke College have thrown down the gauntlet for the remaining “single-sex” campuses, in particular the remaining six of the Seven Sisters (Smith College, Bryn Mawr College, Wellesley College, Barnard College, Radcliffe College, and Vassar College). Smith, in particular, was under public scrutiny last year when they rejected the application of Calliope Wong. Smith’s Dean of Admissions, Debra Shaver has since indicated that the policy is under review and Smith has temporarily ceased rejecting the applications of trans* women.

Please join the Consortium in congratulating Mills College and Mount Holyoke College for their leadership in operationalizing the reality that “gender identity is not reducible to the body” (Kellaway, 2014).
