«It is a historic moment,» President Kathleen McCartney said in an interview with the Smith College.
«I feel proud of the decision we’ve made. We are proclaiming that trans women are women. That feels like an important moment from a civil rights perspective.
«Our conceptions of gender are changing rapidly.»
This decision comes after a recent incident. A trans* woman who cannot change her civil status in her home state had been regarded as a man and her application was denied. It's nice to see that then the university changed its policy.
