ABSTRACT
Intense controversy surrounded the admission of women to the last two state supported single-sex educational institutions, The Citadel and VMI. The debate at The Citadel, in particular, provided a cultural narrative about gender, difference, and diversity. After conducting interviews, collecting letters and editorials, and examining protest language, this study presents a feminist ideological examination of Faulkner v. The Citadel. This work interrogates the discursive strategies defining gender and diversity and offers a strategic model for demystifying essentializing discourse.
