PC V Pride at Harvard

In response to a study correlating same-gender clubs and sexual assault on campus, Harvard University issued rules earlier this year to force “Final Clubs” to go co-ed or shut down entirely. The new policy says students who join Final Clubs, unrecognized single-gender clubs and Greek organizations, cannot participate in leadership positions, athletic teams, or be endorsed for Rhodes or Marshall scholarships.

Joining female organizations and some faculty groups in opposing the new policy, Harvard’s LGBT organization, Campus Pride, says students should have the right to join the influential single-sex organizations. “For some trans and LGB young people, there is great value, affirmation and personal growth from being part of a single-gendered brotherhood or sisterhood,” Shane Windmeyer, the group’s executive director, said in a statement.
