Abstract

The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, and the Virginia Military Institute, two bastions of male privilege in the South, are fighting to keep women out with vengeance reminiscent of the era of massive resistance. This article, a portion of a longer article in progress, delineates the major constitutional questions raised by these cases from the point of view of counsel to Shannon Faulkner, the young woman who sued for admission to The Citadel. As one federal judge has recognized, these cases are not so much about education as about "wealth, power, and the ability of those who have it now to determine who will have it later."
