Storyboard Text

  • United States v. Virginia 1996
  • The Virginia Military Institute (VMI) had a policy that limited men enrollment to it's school. This was appropriate because women would not be able to withstand the training program the students go through. VMI created an alternative program for women at Mary Baldwin College, also known as the Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership. Even though it was created by VMI, it was still a very different experience. One woman, out of hundreds, who applied to attend this institute, brought the issue to attention, stating VMI violated the 14th Amendment. 
  • VMI's male-only admissions policy is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
  • Does Virginia's creation of a women's-only academy, as a comparable program to a male-only academy, satisfy the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection Clause?
