Women-only club allows transwomen in effort to be “inclusive”

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Wing, a private networking community and workspace designed for women, has instituted formal membership guidelines, stating on its website that it "is a diverse community open to all."

After its founding in 2016, The Wing quickly expanded from a single New York City outpost to five locations across the country. A San Francisco branch opened in late 2018. Its mission is "the professional, civic, social, and economic advancement of women through community" and expanding "prosperity for womankind," the website says.

Some people have argued that the company's women-focused emphasis excludes trans people and those who identify as non-binary. Proponents of the women-focused format said it helped foster community and prevent harassment. Some of The Wing's decor, a company podcast and branded merchandise cheekily say "No Man's Land."

In 2017, the New York City Commission on Human Rights opened a "commission-initiated investigation" into the company's operations for possible violations of the city's Human Rights Laws, Jezebel reported. The law forbids businesses, including most private clubs, from discriminating against customers based on gender.'
