After receiving complaints from the transgender community, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is forcing American Eagle to ditch their rule about their employees personal appearance that banned men wearing women's clothing and vice versa.

A member of Make the Road New York, the same group that accused J. Crew of discriminating against transgenders, said "This shows me that there's faith and hope. There might be a domino effect, that's what I'm hoping for."

The settlement signed by American Eagle said they will change their policies as well as their employee handbooks. They will also be training their staff on transgender issues.

A rep from the retailer said in a statement:

"To avoid further expense and the distraction of a prolonged argument, [we have] agreed to a compromise settlement in this case, with the understanding that AEO is not admitting to the findings. We wholeheartedly believe that transgender individuals should be treated equally."

Actions speak louder than words, sister!
