Exclusive clubs and groups have always been present at various universities everywhere. And one of the most popular and historic college clubs is located in Harvard University. Named The Fox Club, this is an elite group consisting of student with bright minds, strong connections and exceptional backgrounds. All members of The Fox Club are of the male gender, but things changed a couple of years ago when they inducted nine women ‘provisional’ members. This move was made after Harvard’s faculty requested all clubs to be gender-neutral. However, another change took place recently when The Fox Club revoked the membership of their nine female members after two years.
Last 2015, an experiment was done in the campus in hopes of making it more gender-neutral for students. All clubs, including those who are only exclusive for men, were required to induct women members or else they’ll face issues against the university board. The Fox club was one of the last groups to follow the order. But in a series of email exchanges between The Fox Club’s graduate leaders, which was acquired by Harvard’s school paper The Crimson, it was revealed that they are now revoking the provisional memberships of those nine women members they inducted two years ago.
Aside from that, a separate message from TFC’s former undergraduate leader Daniel T. Skarzynski, stated that all students who wish to be reconsidered for the group must send an email expressing their desire to be a part of the club. After collecting the emails, the board will then vote on who gets in and who’s rejected for the second time. Skarzynski also made it clear that the reconsideration process will only be applicable to male students for now. And that the club itself will still have to vote whether they’re going to induct female members in the future or not.
