Notre Dame enhances support for gay and lesbian students

April 25, 2012 • Categories: Alumni and Students

In response to student suggestions, the University of Notre Dame has taken several new steps to better support gay, lesbian, bisexual and questioning members of its community.

The result of meetings between student leaders and members of the University’s administration, the initiatives include improving awareness of existing non-discrimination practices and protections as articulated in Notre Dame’s discriminatory harassment policies and “Spirit of Inclusion” statement, and enhancing the structure and functions of the Core Council for Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Students.

Surprisingly soon after it was published in England in 1869, John Stuart Mill’s essay on women’s rights, “Subjection of Women,” was embraced by intellectuals around the world, according to University of Notre Dame political theorist Eileen Hunt Botting.

“I was really struck by its acceptance in non-Western cultures almost immediately,” said Botting, an associate professor of political science, who noted that an earlier feminist work, Mary Wollstonecraft’s “Vindication of the Rights of Woman” (1792), received scant attention outside of Britain, Europe and the United States.
