Schools are Removing the Word ‘Women’ From Clinic Names in Order to Promote Diversity

“This name change is important, as the Pat Walker Health Center affirms diversity and aims to create a welcoming environment for all patients”

Why is the left trying to erase women, and why aren’t more women furious about it?

The College Fix reports:

To promote ‘diversity,’ schools remove word ‘women’ from clinic names

The Pat Walker Health Center at the University of Arkansas recently announced it would change the name of the campus “Women’s Clinic” to the “GYN Clinic.”

“This name change is important, as the Pat Walker Health Center affirms diversity and aims to create a welcoming environment for all patients,” read an email by RHIA Director of Medical Services A.J. Olsen.

Olsen’s email noted that for the time being, the center’s website would continue to use the word “women,” but soon it would be erased completely.

“Eventually we will remove ‘Women’s Health’ from the website and Patient Portal altogether, but we kept it to get all patients accustomed to the new name,” the email read.

The website currently refers to the clinic as the “GYN (Women’s) Clinic.”

When contacted by The College Fix, Olsen declined to comment.

School spokesman John Thomas told The Fix in an email that the name change “was not necessary per se” but that the clinic “just felt GYN better aligned with medical terminology regarding the services the clinic provides.”

Thomas said the cost of making the change was “negligible if any,” as the name can “simply be revised online at no cost.”

“These clinics say that they are doing this in order to be more ‘inclusive,’” said feminist lawyer Kara Dansky, but “what they are really doing is obliterating the material reality of biological sex.”

“The truth is that only women and girls require gynecological care. This is part of a larger societal effort to abolish sex in general,” said Dansky (pictured), author of “The Abolition of Sex: How the ‘Transgender’ Agenda Harms Women and Girls.”

Last year, the Student Alliance for Reproductive Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Madison petitioned the school to change the name of the campus Women’s Health Clinic to the Reproductive Health Clinic.

The group claimed using the word “women” in the title of the clinic was “gendered language” that affected students’ decision to seek health care.

Exactly the point.

    Oh noes! Democrats will now have to come up with a new name for abortion!

There are men who are seen at a fertility clinic (holds hand up) so calling it a reproductive health clinic is “technically correct.” Their reasons for changing the name, obviously, are stupid.

“the Pat Walker Health Center affirms diversity”

At least they’ve got a leg up on that.
🎶”It’s Pat!”

I have fond memories of Providence’s “Lying-In Hospital,” later renamed (in the exact inverse of today’s movement) “Women and Infants Hospital.” No fear that the woke will darken its door today to trans-mute its name again — it’s now (fittingly) a rehab and hospice. Gotta respond to changing social priorities.
