Women’s Scholarships And Awards Eliminated To Be Fair To Men

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women’s scholarships, leadership programs, awards and even gym hours are being eliminated or canceled by universities because they discriminate against men. Complaints are being filed with the Department of Education (DOE) about programs and funding for women at universities across the country, and the DOE is taking action. One of the latest targets is the Marilyn C. Davis scholarship at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC).

Eliminating a women’s program, award or scholarship isn’t the only solution for a university facing a Title IX complaint. Instead, the university can offer a similar program for men. Perry explains, “At Eastern Michigan University, they had a Digital Divas program for high school girls interested in computer science. And so I challenged that program as a violation of Title IX, and they started a Digital Dudes program. Then they had one for boys and one for girls.” Another alternative for maintaining girls’ STEM summer camps at universities is allowing boys to participate in the same program alongside the girls.
Last year, Biden signed an executive order stating, “It is the policy of my Administration that all students should be guaranteed an educational environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex.” It’s unlikely he was referring to eliminating scholarships and awards for women, but that seems to be an unintended effect of enforcing these codes.'
