概要 One recent trend in womens colleges the world over is accepting transgender female students (hereafter TGF) and making a significant step in womens education. Almost all womens colleges in the US had admitted TGF by June 2015. In Japan, two national womens colleges declared that they would admit TGF from 2020, and two private ones announced they would do so from 2021 and 2024, respectively. Having worked for a womens university for nearly 20 years, I was curious to learn about my students readiness to accept this trend and conducted some discussion sessions and questionnaires involving more than 100 students. The results show that students need to deepen their understanding of issues surrounding TGFs. They all seem fearful because of this issues ambiguity.
