On Nov. 3, 2014, over 1,000 Fordham University students, lead by the group S.A.G.E.S, (Students for Sex and Gender Equality and Safety) presented a petition to Fordham President Rev. Joseph McShane, S.J., demanding reform on Fordham’s strict sexual health and gender policies.
The Students for Sex and Gender Equality and Safety Coalition (S.A.G.E.S.) has faced opposition from students who either misunderstand their aims or just do not care about women’s health and reproductive rights.
The Fordham chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) held their second annual Prescribe Fordham event in the John Jay College of Criminal Justice's conference center on Wednesday, Oct. 24.
As students, we expect Fordham to be open about its policies and provide students with information about what is clearly stated in its manuals. Many students are unaware that the Health Center is required to provide birth control in the case of specific medical conditions—and understandably so.
