E. Jean Carroll - Pi Beta Phi (advise columnist/journalist)

I had a subscription to Elle Magazine in its 1st year and several years after.
E. Jean Carroll was the advise columnist for many years. She is a sage. I also lived in NYC in this era. I believe her completely because it was common knowledge. I was warned about Trump and (thankfully) chose to stay away.

She is no longer a member of Pi Beta Phi, and hasn't been one for more than three, perhaps even four, decades.

This "issue" of former members brings up a sticky point for me. When a woman resigns her membership (or is removed from membership - whatever), yet continues to report her affiliation, as in "I was a Theta but I dropped" that really annoys me. I'm black and white in my thinking on this. When your membership ends, that's it. Period. No more "former". No more associating yourself with the letters, even in the sense of "I was... but I resigned/quit/blah blah blah " for any reason.

No. Nope. Uh-uh. You are DONE, take the affiliation out of your bio, please.

Feel free to share your opinion, this is just mine.

Not interested in discussing the validity of any claims. I got stuff to do, and I hate speculating.

If you are using it as a professional stepping stone then yes, I agree with you wholeheartedly.

E Jean Carroll didnít say in this article what sorority she was once a member of. She said she wished to pledge Pi Phi or KKG. She may say more in the book, but I wonít be reading that any time soon.

I agree with this completely.

Additionally, this is an excerpt of a memoir. If someone wants to mention or even write about their experiences while they were a GLO member, that is their right and part of their life story. It doesn't mean that the person is trying to pass themselves off as a current member.
