All-Women Liberal Arts College Votes To Allow Trans, Non-Binary Individuals To Apply


Students at a woman-only private liberal arts college in Massachusetts supported a non-binding referendum on Tuesday that would allow women who identify as men and “non-binary” individuals to apply to the institution.

Student body officials at Wellesley College, which includes alumnae Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright, voted unanimously last month to advance the Gender Inclusivity Ballot, which would allow students to “express their views” on the 150-year-old institution’s admissions policy while making its language more inclusive to such students. However, school officials said the student vote wouldn’t have any impact on the school’s policies or practices.

“He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.” Genesis 5:2

The college already accepts transgender-identifying students who were born male, but the controversial referendum expands the application process for women who identify as men.

“We’re just asking the administration to put on paper what’s already true of the student body,” Alexandra Brooks, the student body president, told The New York Times. “Trans men go to Wellesley, nonbinary people go to Wellesley, and they kind of always have.”

Elizabeth Um, a senior and president of the campus’ pro-life group, Wellesley For Life, told the Times that she enrolled at the liberal arts college due to its close proximity to home and its identity as a women’s college.

“If you don’t think you can fit in here, then you have your pick of thousands of other coed colleges in the country or the world,” Um said. “We’re a women’s college. That’s the core identity of the school, and we can’t start watering that down.”
