CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Three Harvard University sororities are objecting to a school policy that bans students-sex clubs from holding campus leadership positions.
The women in a joint letter to the Harvard President Drew Faust say that their organisations are unfairly punished for the wrongdoing of the men-only clubs.
The declaration says the sanctions will undermine the choices that are available on the Harvard women.
The sororities say that the policy forces women to choose between the ability to be a supportive, empowerment of women-only spaces and external leadership opportunities.”
The university of the board of directors last week approved in May 2016, the rule to say students who participate in single-gender clubs are prohibited from leading campus groups or serve as sports team captains. The rule also says the university, based in Cambridge, won ‘ t back students for major scholarships.
A university spokesman refused comment.
