Regarding the news story “Going coed often only option” : Chatham University, an all-female undergraduate university, is considering going coed for its undergraduate programs and is being met with resistance from its alumnae. Other all-female colleges and universities have also met with such resistance while contemplating going coed.

I find it amazing that these alumnae — who want everyone else to accept diversity — will not readily accept diversity themselves.

These are the same women who cry foul about inequality in pay, inequality in opportunity, inequality for women in every aspect of life. Yet they do not want to have equality thrust upon their beloved institution.

Discrimination is taught firsthand in Chatham University's undergraduate programs every day by disallowing diversity in its classrooms. What is even more amazing is that these alumnae are out in the world, assuming leadership roles with this type of discriminatory educational background.

Diversity is not a one-way street. It can be successful only when everyone wanting it has a broader vision themselves.
