By bypassing that pesky gender requirement. “Harvard’s chapter of the all-female sorority Kappa Alpha Theta will become the gender-neutral social group ‘Theta Zeta Xi’ and will disaffiliate from its national organization in the fall of 2018, the club announced Monday,” The Harvard Crimson reported. “In a statement, club members tied the decision to go co-ed directly to the College’s social group penalties, writing they are acting ‘in good faith with Harvard’s social organization and nondiscrimination policies.'”

“The College’s sanctions—which took effect with the Class of 2021—bar members of single-gender final clubs and Greek organizations from holding student group leadership positions, varsity athletic team captaincies, and from receiving College endorsement for prestigious fellowships.”
