Citadel Alternative Began Yesterday for South Carolina Women

Twenty-two women began training yesterday at the newly created South Carolina Institute of Leadership for Women. South Carolina and the Citadel gave Converse College, a private women’s school, $10 million to start the leadership program in an attempt to keep women out of the publicly funded Citadel. A federal judge is scheduled to rule in November on whether the new program constitutes a constitutional equivalent of the Citadel, which had lost a sex-discrimination lawsuit filed by Shannon Faulkner when the school rescinded her acceptance upon discovering that she was female.
