Women’s College in Missouri Redefines Womanhood, Welcomes Transgender Women

Stephens College in Missouri announced recently that the traditionally all-female school would allow transgender women to enroll starting in the fall of 2019.

According to The Christian Post, men who are transitioning to females will be allowed to attend the college, but any women transitioning to males will have to leave the school.

“Because the College has expanded its definition of womanhood to include both sex and gender, it is logically consistent that it also acknowledges both sex and gender in its definition of manhood,” the college said in a statement.

“As a result, the College will stop admitting and enrolling students who were born female but who now identify as men or who are transitioning from female to male.  The College will also continue to admit and enroll students who were born female but who identify as non-binary, meaning students who experience their gender identity as falling outside the categories of man and woman. “ 

Students will have to provide legal documentation that they live and identify as a woman.

According to Inside Higher Ed, the college has been reviewing the policy change since 2014.

Stephens College is the second oldest all-women college in the U.S. The oldest women-only college is Salem College in North Carolina.
