After the Department of Justice applied pressure, the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith will now allow a transgender woman to use women's restrooms.
Jennifer Braly has been fighting for the right to use women's facilities at UA. Braly, 38, was a guest lecturer at the university as well as a student; she says she was banned from lecturing because she challenged UA's bathroom policy.
The school is now allowing Braly to use the facilities, but only after the Department of Justice sent a letter to the school. Read more here, but be warned that the article continuously refers to Braly's anatomy.
