A Harvard fraternity has announced it damages historic rules and starts accepting female students. AEPi, a traditionally Jewish organisation, has been forced to disassociate from its national organisation after taking the decision in order to “create a more equitable social scene” at the university, all the groups in Harward are gender-neutral, otherwise they will face sanctions. Undergraduate members of groups who don’t comply will be prohibited from taking up certain leadership positions, sports captaincies and postgraduate fellowships.
AEPi is the first to alter its rules since the university’s announcement in May. In a letter to other students at Harvard, the fraternity admitted that “the announcement of the sanctions certainly spurred our decision,” but said its decision was in accordance with its long-held values.
