Lady of JusticeThree female students at Yale are suing the school and nine of its fraternities for discrimination and sexual misconduct.

Despite two of the three women claiming they were once groped at a frat party as freshman, they are now suing for the right to join Yale fraternities. 

Cultural analyst Janice Crouse says despite the bad reputation fraternities have acquired, she says they exponentially continue to grow.

"So I don't think it's surprising that we have these initiatives coming up," she says. "It's part of the feminist movement to expand the influence of feminism."

Crouse, Janice (CWA)There are myriad reasons why left-wing feminists oppose fraternities and Crouse says one of those is that liberals heavily promote the LGBT agenda.

"And they don't like the idea that fraternities and sororities require people to identify in a binary way, either as a male or a female," she says.

The plaintiffs also contend that fraternities violate Title IX but education watchdog Campus Reform points out that social fraternities and sororities are notably exempt from Title IX regulations.
